Why Should You Attend:
The contract between a payer and a hospital often includes much verbiage that is of little help to a case management leader. It is important, however that they understand the source for any requirements of the case management department. This may be either in the contract or the provider book. Understanding the contents of UM language is critical in ensuring best-practice utilization management processes.
Contracts are often viewed as mysterious documents with unknown contents to the case management department. This webinar will introduce an effective strategy to better understand the utilization management portion of a contract, as well as what the leader should expect to be included in any managed care contract between a hospital and a payer.
Additionally, understanding how we are paid is often challenging and there will be a section to provide education for case management leaders.

Managed care contracts can by scary. They are understood by very few in a hospital. Typically, case management leaders have not been a part of contract content or contract negotiations. In fact, when approaching those in a hospital who are responsible for contracts there is often a “push back” to sharing information in these contracts. A case management leader must be very clear what part of the contract they are requesting.
It is difficult to lead a department that is providing utilization management processes with a payer and have absolutely no idea what is being required by that payer. Thus, this webinar is of utmost importance in assisting case management leaders in understating how we are paid, what impacts what we are paid and how to ensure that the department is pursing best-practice collaboration with the payer in providing information regarding their members’ hospital stays.
