therapists (PTs) should consider a number of details before contracting with
payers, whether private or public. View
APTA's new Managed Care Contracting Toolkit
today to learn valuable information about joining a managed care plan, and
securing and tracking contracts. A chapter on "doing the math"
can help you decide which fee schedules, patient populations, and
payment methodologies are best suited to your practice. The toolkit also breaks down the pros and cons of common
methodologies that third-party payers use to pay for physical therapy services
and offers information on negotiating contracts.
APTA's Payment and Practice Management Department created the member-only toolkit to help PTs make informed decisions about joining a provider network.
