The Truth About Network Exclusivity
Don’t Succumb to Network Pressure Tactics
Frequently Workers’ Compensation Networks attempt to dictate to Therapy Providers how they should manage referrals and mandate that referrals earned by the clinic be sent to their Network based on Client Lists. Let’s talk about those Client Lists.
There is a perception in the rehabilitation industry that when referrals are not received from a specific Network, Therapy Providers should invoice those referrals based on Network-Provided Client Lists. That is simply not true.
The reality of these pressure tactics and Network-Provided Client Lists is that they do not mandate client exclusivity with a particular Network. They only indicate that the Network has done business with those clients in the past.
Remember, you’re in the driver’s seat. When you receive a referral directly from an organization or employer, you have earned that referral and are empowered to choose a Network based on what is best for your patients. You are empowered to send these earned referrals to the Network that makes the most sense for your business. Period.
Provider Support and Quality Care Should Drive Your Network Choice
Bardavon partners with our national Network of Therapy Providers by offering clinical and operational support and fair compensation, so that you can focus on achieving quality functional outcomes. We’re willing to bet our proven Provider/Patient-centric business model is superior to those of other Networks. As our partner, we want you to support our dedication to clinical data for all Workers’ Compensation treatments. When we partner in this way, we can all make meaningful change to the entire industry, together. Afterall, it’s the reason we built our Premier Partner program—to empower you and bring forth a transformation.
In Bardavon-speak, we divide referrals into three categories.
- Bardavon Network Referrals: Referrals sent to you from Bardavon.
- Non-Bardavon Network Referrals: Referrals assigned by another Workers’ Compensation Network.
- Provider-Guided Referrals: Patients that come directly to you, that you have earned, and have not been referred by a Network. We intentionally name this category Provider-Guided because you ultimately choose the payment and claims processing path, and access to clinical quality metrics for these referrals.
Our position? Choose Bardavon as your partner. Every time.
