Payer Contracting Committee

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

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

The committee will not be working on any direct contract negotiations or language issues but instead will serve in an advisory role. Our goal is to offer support through investing in payer/provider relationships through this committee.
