Understanding Silent PPOs
Length: 1 Hour
Are your fees being reduced without you knowing or approving of it? In this presentation, Dr. Steven Clarke will discuss the various aspects and pitfalls of involvement with Silent PPO networks. Understanding what they are, how these inappropriate schemes work, and how you can avoid being impacted by unknown fee reductions is at the heart of this presentation. States and professions throughout the country have been addressing this problematic issue.
During this one-hour presentation, attendees will get an in-depth understanding of the Silent PPO world and learn how and why it happens and what action steps providers can take to minimize a reduction in their usual and customary fees for services rendered.
