Healthcare providers often do not maximize their managed care reimbursement because they are not aware of all the different payment options available. Both the government and managed care organizations are introducing new compensation models for physicians. In order to maximize compensation, this activity is designed to provide an overview of these models, how to negotiate the best compensation for practice, and what changes to make in practices in order to maximize compensation.
