Managed Care Contracting Toolkit

Originally created in June 2009 and updated in December 2016, the updated Managed Care Contracting Toolkit (Toolkit) follows the previous form but provides updated information in light of changes in law, including the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The Toolkit is organized in the order of a typical managed care contract and outlines general principles that should be considered when negotiating contract provisions as a Provider or Managed Care Organization (MCO). Where applicable and unambiguous, sample contract language has been marked as either MCO- or provider-friendly, or neutral. Important principles have been listed at the beginning of each section to provide a roadmap and some general thoughts for contracting parties.
