Unwelcome Houseguests: Addressing Bad Behavior By Leased Network Payers After UFCW v. Sutter Health

Webinar Only

In UFCW & Employers Benefit Trust v. Sutter Health, the California Court of Appeal held that the rights and obligations of a provider as against a leased network payer are not governed by the underlying contract between the provider and the contracting agent. A significant amount of provider revenue comes from leased network payers, so this decision has left providers scratching their heads as to how they can obtain the benefit of the bargain they struck when they agreed to accept discounted payments from leased network payers. This webinar will focus on strategies that revenue cycle departments can employ to identify ways that leased network payers have “misbehaved” by failing to adhere to the terms of agreements between the providers and contracting agents. The webinar will also explore contracting strategies to prevent such misbehavior.
