Well, the fall is definitely upon us! Over in Boston, leaves are falling, changing to majestic landscapes, and the nights are getting cold; but The Phia Group is just heating up. We have so much information to share with you this newsletter from new service offerings to case law to regulatory changes. One of the things I wanted to share with you is the amazing conference I had the privilege to speak at this past weekend in Oklahoma City; the First Free Market Medical (FMMA) Association conference. It is rare that I am overwhelmed with new information, but this forum did the trick. The goal of the Free Market Medical Association is to bring together physicians, surgeons, providers, facilities, and support businesses to provide necessary resources to promote a successful industry. Its focus is to defend the practice of free market medicine without the intervention of government or other third parties.
As new products, procedures and methodologies are adopted by health benefit plans, each change in claims processing must be preceded by a change made to the applicable plan document. Nothing – from reference based pricing to MEC/Skinny Plans – can be implemented unless and until the plan document is adjusted accordingly.
The Phia Group has developed the industry’s first and only plan document drafting program that combines the convenience of online software with the personal attention to detail expected from The Phia Group’s team of plan drafting specialists.
Join The Phia Group’s CEO, Adam V. Russo, Esq., as he and Senior Vice President and General Counsel (Ron E. Peck, Esq.), Vice President of Consulting (Jennifer McCormick, Esq.), and a team of expert plan drafting specialists discuss the Phia Document Management system, innovative plan design, and why it is especially relevant in light of changes we predict all plan documents will be required to undergo in the coming years.
What a spring we have had here at The Phia Group. From travelling across the country speaking at various venues, hosting our own Phia Forum a few weeks ago, to our new service offerings; we have been extremely busy here at the home office. Now that the summer is here, you would expect that things would slow down but that’s not the case at all. As the temperature rises, so does our work load, as the number of issues facing the self insured industry continues to grow. Who said that health insurance is boring!?!?!?
