Value-Based Contracting For Small Practices
Members have the option to participate in UR’s Care Networks (UR-CNSM), the clinically integrated network that offers a platform for innovative contracting with managed care companies while preserving an individual practice’s autonomy for fee-for-service contracts.

For an independent physician, reviewing contracts and fee schedules can be a daunting task. Our goal is to help you understand the business implications of your contracts and fee schedules. We can provide you with strategies to help maximize the data and business. We may also suggest actions based on your practice and equip you with the information you need to execute successfully.
As part of your United Rheumatology membership, you’ll enjoy access to our payor contracting support service. United Rheumatology’s approach to contracting is strategically focused and customized to your practice and service area. We do not negotiate or interact with your payor(s); rather, we review, analyze, and benchmark your data.
