EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT REVIEW PROGRAM:
Due to the changing healthcare delivery landscape and the increasing number of physicians who wish to be employed, MSNJ has developed an employment contract review program for its members.
MSNJ’s Corporate Partner Law Firms will offer an initial legal consultation for a discounted flat rate of $500.* Initial consultation includes:
- preliminary review of the employment contract;
- a written summary of terms of concern; and
- a phone consultation with an attorney regarding contract provisions that may require modification or further negotiation.
Members should contact the Corporate Partner of their choice to begin the consultation process. Members should expect to sign a retainer letter and/or representation agreement from the Corporate Partner chosen to perform the initial consultation. Employment Contract Review Program inquiries will be given priority by the participating firms.
CLAIMS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The Claims Assistance Program (CAP) was designed to assist MSNJ members with claims payment and other managed care issues. CAP began in 2003 and has helped over 1,000 members with over $3.5 million in claims issues to date.
