What California Orthopedics & Spine Says about PayrHealth

We are the largest orthopedic practice in Marin County, CA, and PayrHealth has been a key partner in helping us renegotiate contracts.  We have engaged PayrHealth’ services three times over the last 10 years, and each time they obtained above-market rates with major payors which increased our annual revenue significantly.

California Orthopedics & Spine were looking to renegotiate their top revenue-producing payor contracts, but didn’t have the time or resources to lead a successful renegotiation effort.


California Orthopedics & Spine retained PayrHealth several times to lead their key payor renegotiations. PayrHealth evaluated their contracted rates, coordinated with payors, and renegotiated on their behalf.


By working with PayrHealth, California Orthopedics & Spine obtained increased reimbursement on major contracts. They realized double-digit percentage increases, obtained multi-year escalators and added new lines of business.
