The Health Plans Contracting Handbook, Seventh Edition from AHLA traces the managed care contracting process from preparing to negotiate the contract, to formation and implementation, to termination issues. It identifies key questions typically encountered in preparing such agreements with a perspective that incorporates the current environmental challenges confronting managed care organizations, including the impact that healthcare reform issues will have on Provider-Payer relations. The Handbook considers the interests of Payers alongside those of providers and juxtaposes sample Provider-Friendly and Payer-Friendly language in order to help frame the negotiation and documentation of the parties' competing interests. It also offers separate chapters on Medicare and Medicaid managed care contracting in recognition of the growing significance that governmental Payers will have in years to come. Each chapter finishes with a bullet-point checklist of key considerations and a list of other useful resources, including both print and web-based sources.
