Long Island Health Care Network Signs Deal With Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield

A network of Long Island doctors recently signed a deal with the state’s largest insurer, Long Island Business News reports.

Such a deal highlights the need for a firm of lawyers who have knowledge of New York contract law. Such insurance deals are complex and usually have many terms, including rates, conditions and other factors that require a contract is properly handled.The Beacon Independent Physician Association, founded last year and has nearly 250 members, reached a three-year agreement with Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield. IPAs have been cropping up around Long Island and nationwide, allowing doctors to remain independent but give them big bargaining power in deals with insurers.

The IPA can lead to compensation based on efforts to improve care through electronic medical records, follow up and eliminating unnecessary testing, such as exams that are duplicated. The doctors share information with each other.
