Healthcare is a highly competitive marketplace and EMS providers, in particular, are facing greater downward pressures than ever before.
A large part of any provider strategy is successfully navigating relationships – especially relationships with payers. Yet today, payers seem to be uninterested in entering good faith negotiations. Often, a take it or leave it – and at times, even threatening – stance is taken.
How can EMS providers turn the tables and bring balance back into the negotiations? Join Fitch & Associates on Tuesday, Oct. 17, at 1 p.m. CT, for an insightful panel discussion focusing on three key areas designed to rebalance the scales:
- Utilizing independent data sources to establish the market and the value of your services within that market
- Deploying arbitration as well as the independent dispute resolution process under the NSA
- Occasionally moving forward with litigation when payers push bad payer tactics to the brink
Juli Forde Smith, ZOLL Data Systems Director of Strategic Partnerships, will lead the discussion. Smith will be joined by distinguished panelists, Cody Dumas, managing attorney of DumasNeel; and Thomas J. Moore, junior partner with Fitch & Associates.
