Provider Contracting

We possess a wealth of experience in provider/physician/ancillary and hospital contracting. ACR’s provider contracting experts have the experience and expertise to find the right providers and get them under contract in a timely manner.


We are experts in multiple specialty/group/ancillary and FQHC/RHC billing. Our billing services include accurate claim coding as well as timely and accurate claim billing, appeals, and collections.



Whether it be CAQH updates or a full credentialing application, we can help. We provide comprehensive and accurate Physician/Ancillary and Hospital credentialing.

Network Development

Of our core services, provider network development is the foundation. ACR has a track record of effectively and efficiently developing provider networks.

Contract Language Negotiation

We provide expert contract negotiation services, with 30 years of successful negotiating experience among our team. ACR negotiators work to negotiate contracts that position their clients for maximum success and profitability, and mitigation and/or reduction of client liability.

Single Case Agreements

Our handling of single case agreements frees up insurers to handle other issues, provides a level of expertise that many providers do not possess, and facilitates patient access to out-of-networks providers.

MIPS/MACRA Consulting

We’ve partnered with some of the most respected subject matter experts regarding the MACRA/MIPS/APM program under Medicare. From these partnerships, ACR Consulting Services is able to pair physician practices with MACRA/MIPS/APM solutions best suited to meet their needs.


With national relationships across the healthcare arena, we would love to introduce you to game-changing software to rapidly spin your data needs. This solution is being sought after by many Health plans and software firms to create fast, efficient and solid cloud-based environments.

We perform with honesty, integrity, and experience to expand your network across providers, negotiate your contract terms, and reduce your costs.
