New Webinar Series on Managed Care Contracting in the Rapidly Changing Environment
The American Medical Association (AMA) is launching a new managed care contracting webinar series discussing why now, as physicians face the transformation of the health care payment and delivery system, it is imperative that your practice read and understand contract amendments before signing on the dotted line. Even if you think you lack bargaining power, understanding the new contract terms will only help your practice. The initial webinar on Tuesday, July 24 at Noon C.T., "Introduction to managed care contracting," will discuss key payment and delivery system changes that your practice will start seeing in its managed care contracts. The webinar will include a discussion and demonstration of the AMA’s one-of-a-kind, comprehensive and empowering National Managed Care Contract (NMCC) database, which will show how simple it is to use this resource to help your practice adapt to an evolving health care landscape. The webinar will conclude with a description of the upcoming contracting “hot topics” that will be discussed in subsequent webinars.
Register today for this introductory webinar to learn more about this series, and learn what you need to do to achieve success in managed care contracting. Subsequent webinars in this series will be held at Noon C.T. on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month.
