The demand for transparency and defensible pricing is greater than ever. The chargemaster and managed care contracts hold vital information you need to create a bill including codes, descriptions for services, revenue codes that direct income to the appropriate departments, and the charges each service or product generates.

Both governmental agencies and your patients are demanding greater sophistication and accuracy in establishing pricing.

Your Chargemaster has become the central, most pivotal component in your strategic pricing effort. New methods are available to integrate payer contract information with market analysis and the actual cost of the charge description master (CDM) line item to ensure that prices are established at defensible levels and integrated with your managed care and service line strategy. Are you ready?

This annual conference is dedicated to sharing revenue cycle and managed care strategies that result in defensible pricing, competitive contracting and most importantly, an accurate chargemaster. Our past events have consistently received rave reviews from your peers and this year promises to be even better – incorporating new insights from leading national experts!
