Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are steadily growing across the county. HHAs cannot solely depend upon traditional Medicare and must contract with MA plans. The first step to success Home health agencies must develop effective strategies to negotiate contracts with MA plans. Prepare for presentation and negotiation: in addition to knowing which traditional services to offer, agencies will need to present the specifics on the quality and value the MA plan can expect from the HHA. Consider non-traditional home care type services to offer that will benefit the patient and the MA plan that may be unique to the HHA. This session will supply you with the proper tools to prepare for and conduct contract negotiations for terms and conditions. You will also receive guidelines on how to measure success.
- Identify the value and quality benefits provided to the Medicare Advantage plan through the Plan’s use of your agency’s services.
