Full service consultation is available to help you analyze contract offers and develop counter-proposals or identify necessary changes to protect you from ambiguous terms and provisions that lead to payment delays and denials.
We negotiate on your behalf if you lack the time or expertise to negotiate on your own. Alternatively, we shadow coach you throughout the entire negotiation proceedings so you appear as the seasoned expert negotiator.
We assist with analysis and negotiation of any payment arrangement -- including, but limited to: discounted fee-for-service, performance-based contracting, shared risk, full risk capitation, case rates, DRGs, and more.
If you recently opened and need to secure new payor contracts, we handle the market research, book of business analysis, due diligence, and other pre-contracting activities you'll need to grow and sustain your business.
MERCURY ADVISORY GROUP CONTRACTS FOR MANAGED CARE SERVICES ON AN HOURLY FEE AGREEMENT BASIS WITH AN ADVANCE DEPOSIT ON ACCOUNT
Upon request of our clients, Mercury Advisory Group experts assist clients with telephone or onsite consultation, outsourced contract review and recommendations for counter-proposals and modifications to protect them from unnecessary risk of payment delays, denials and costly administrative burdens. We can negotiate on your behalf or shadow coach you behind the scenes until you are comfortable doing it on your own.
Each third-party payer or plan administrator selects its own short-list of qualified providers according to its company priorities and plan design for its employees, executives and retirees. All costs associated with our services are borne by the provider. Our charges do not imply any guarantee of success or preference by insurers, provider networks, HMOs, PPOs, or self-funded employers and labor union plan administrators.
