PHO maintains strong relationships with local payers to strategically position our organization for future group contracting opportunities as an “accountable healthcare organization” in line with proposed healthcare reform and payment reform legislation. Our PHO also seeks new revenue opportunities for our membership, including participation in national class-action settlement suits (i.e. BCBS National Class Action Settlement – 2007).
PHO also serves as the liaison between our membership and local health plans to help address and resolve business issues (i.e. UHC’s Premium Designation Program concerns).
