Addiction Treatment Reimbursement Rates: Part 2
In our prior post on negotiating reimbursement rates, we interviewed PANLR founder and President Kevin Isaacs about how to negotiate more effectively with payers for higher reimbursement rates in 2020. In this article, we continue our interview.
Are you thinking about your reimbursement rates for addiction treatment in 2020? If not, you should be.
During the summer lull, many providers turn their attention to back-office improvement initiatives, and unfortunately, most of us in the addiction treatment industry have felt the pressure of declining reimbursement rates over the past 18 months. Now, more than ever it is crucial to understand how to negotiate more effectively with payers for higher reimbursement rates if facilities want to survive the revenue revolution upon us. For most, this is unchartered territory with little knowledge of where to begin. To help bridge this gap, we interviewed Kevin Isaacs, founder and President at PANLR - a leading provider of outsourced payer contracting services.
