Cindy Haines Presents on Renegotiating Community Health Choices Contracts on PHCA Webinar on Sept. 10
On September 10, 2020, Cynthia A. Haines presented the webinar, "Renegotiating Community Health Choices Contracts." The webinar is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Health Care Association (PHCA).
The Community Health Choices (CHC) program in the Southwest will reach the end of the initial term of the CHC contract and the “continuity period” at the end of this year. Facilities in the counties affected by Phase 2 and Phase 3 will reach this milestone over the next eighteen months. Ms. Haines provided lessons from the initial term, identified possible renegotiation points, and reviewed the best ways to “make the case” for rates and contract terms that will help providers better serve their community. She also shared the steps providers can take to prepare for renegotiation and some of the challenges they may face.
