2019 NCMGMA Payer Contracting Committee


Chair Doral Jacobsen, Prosper Beyond

The NCMGMA Payer Contracting Committee was established to support NCMGMA members in navigating payer contracting arrangements. The committee has three primary goals:

  1. Support members and payers in developing sustainable, collaborative relationships.
  2. Increase member awareness of key considerations relative to our state’s payer contracting landscape.
  3. Serve as a resource for members in addressing overarching payer contracting issues.

While the committee will not be working on any direct contract negotiations or language issues, it will instead serve in an advisory role. To that end, we have established payer liaisons and partnership with major payers including BCBS, Carolina Complete Health, CIGNA, United Healthcare, Wellcare and are working on several others. We hope to offer support through investing in relationships through this committee.

We are looking to you to help us understand your needs. Be on the lookout for a survey asking for feedback which will assist the committee in further refining our focus.

We are honored to serve North Carolina MGMA members and look forward to supporting collaborative relationships with our payer partners.

Doral Jacobsen,
2019-2021 Payer Contracting Committee Chair
