Pannone Lopes Devereaux & West LLC (PLDW) Health Care Attorney Jillian N. Jagling released a white paper, entitled What’s In Your Provider Contract?, which describes and explains in detail the elements of a health care provider contract.  The comprehensive report highlights compliance and regulatory issues and provides information for health care providers to navigate this very complex environment.

“For the most part, hospitals, provider associations and other large medical facilities leverage their size to their advantage when negotiating contracts with health insurance companies,” said Attorney Jagling. “On the other hand, individual providers and small health care practices do not have the clout or capacity and are typically at a disadvantage during the negotiation process. Regardless of the scale and leverage that a provider might have, it is critical for providers to understand what is included within the terms of the standard provider contract to be able to navigate this complex, but essential area. This white paper is an in-depth review of a provider contract that will help large or small health care entities be informed.”

Attorney Jagling is an Associate with PLDW and a member of the firm’s Health Care and Corporate & Business Teams. She is an accomplished health care law attorney with significant experience in the area of state and federal health industry compliance laws and regulations.  Prior to joining the firm, she was an attorney at Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island where she was responsible for drafting and negotiating various types of contracts for all areas of the company, managing the Company’s litigation case load and providing guidance to senior level executives on complex and diverse matters, as a business partner and to ensure compliance with federal and state laws and regulations.
