Practicing physicians encounter a wide variety of contracts for payment for their services. The AMA held a virtual mini-bootcamp on December 1, 2021, covering both introductory and advanced contracting topics important for physicians to know. The introductory portion of that event recording, “Payor Contracting 101,” is now available here, and covers basic contract provisions, the legal rules governing contracts, commonly negotiated provisions, common disputes, and innovative/non-traditional opportunities. To accompany the webinar, the AMA has also published a payor contracting toolkit, which provides an overview of payors and outlines common insurance products and reimbursement structures. The recording of the advanced contracting portion of the bootcamp, “Payor Contracting 201,” will be available in early February!
