MNAAP President-Elect Sheldon Berkowitz, MD, FAAP, will attend the Pediatric Council Forum at the NCE. The AAP national committee Payer Advocacy Advisory Committee (PAAC) arranged the Pediatric Council Forum as an opportunity to discuss payer advocacy strategies with AAP Chapter leadership.
In advance of the forum, Dr. Berkowitz is asking MNAAP members to consider the following questions:
- What are some of the successes with payers you have had over the past year?
- How are the following issues impacting pediatrics?
Credentialing in payer networks
Quality/Cost Ratings in payer payment models
3. What are the positive areas of payer value-based models that have been implemented by payers? What are the areas in need of improvement?
Email Dr. Berkowitz with questions or comments relating to these topics (which Dr. Berkowitz will plan to bring up at the forum and get back to everyone about), at sheldon.berkowitz@childrensmn.
