ACO Contracting Services

ACO Payer Contracting

Reliance consultants utilize a client specific process to initiate ACO payer contacts, develop a payer-specific contract negotiation strategy and negotiate ACO payer contracts as determined by our clients based on strategic findings. The ACO payer contracting process involves:

    • Client data acquisition (e.g. PCP membership & credentials);
    • Payer notification and data request (e.g. accountable care contract template);
    • ACO contract assessment, legal analysis and negotiation strategy development;
    • Commercial payer contract negotiations (e.g. facilitate meetings, chronologies,);
    • Contract execution facilitation (e.g. advise on fulfillment of contract deliverables)

In addition to commercial payer contracting services, RCG provides strategic management services to our clients to include (but not limited to):
    • ACO assessment to determine readiness to achieve payer contracting terms;
    • Development of action plans based on assessment results;
