Client Need

This client engaged PayrHealth with a goal of obtaining contracts with top payors in the Los Angeles County area with higher- than-average rates. Due to their vast service offerings, this client found it necessary to obtain support navigating complex payor contracts at a higher-than-average rate. Although this client had received several contracts offers from payors before coming on board, the rates were not reflective of the services being offered. This client took to action and sought out a team to obtain higher rates beyond the initial reimbursement offers.

PayrHealth's Solution

PayrHealth worked with four major payors (UHC, Blue Shield CA, Cigna, and Oscar) to both obtain initial contracts and negotiate an above-average rate. Overall, PayrHealth was able to help expand care and access to nearly two million patients lives in Los Angeles County for this client.
