5-10% revenue increase in top performing codes

Client Need

SMOC was committed to staying on the cutting edge of modern medicine and surgical techniques but found that many of their existing contracts were extremely outdated, meaning they didn’t have the revenue needed to compete with practices who were able to purchase new and novel equipment or practitioners. They asked PayrHealth for help because they lacked the internal expertise to address the complexity and time-intensive process of renegotiation. SMOC recognized their need to renegotiate decades-old contracts that hamstrung their payor revenue streams with outdated rates and non-competitive terms. Not having the time or expertise to handle this in-house, they turned to PayrHealth for their contract negotiation and re-negotiation needs.

PayrHealth's Solution

Top Contract Offer Moved From '08 Medicare Reimbursement Rate To 130% of CMS Rates

Under their Payor Portfolio Management contract with PayrHealth, SMOC and PayrHealth worked with five contracts at a time to renegotiate their most valuable contracts to obtain competitive rates and terms with large insurance providers.
