Help With Negotiating Health Plan Contracts

If a health care payment plan contract is raising more questions than it answers, TMA's Physician's Contract Evaluation Service can help with review of an existing contract or one you may be considering.

For $150, Michael Z. Stern, JD, of the Law Office of Hubert Bell, Jr., will review a new or existing managed care contract for legal pitfalls and provisions that may alter or affect your medical practice. You will receive a written evaluation. Send your contract along with payment to Michael Z. Stern, JD, Law Office of Hubert Bell, Jr. 1907 N. Lamar Blvd., Ste. 300, Austin, TX 78701.  (Reviews of other types of contracts also are available. For a price quote, forward a copy of your contract to Mr. Stern.) 

For more information, contact Mr. Stern at (512) 469-9006 or m_stern@sbcglobal.net, or the TMA Knowledge Center at (800) 880-7955 or knowledge@texmed.org.
