Our Testimonials

“Healthcare Provider Connections did a great job by quickly garnering effective contracting resources to help us build out provider networks for our Medicare Advantage Plan.”
“As a repeat customer for almost two years now, Healthcare Provider Connections is the first company we go to for consulting purposes and we keep several of her representatives almost year-round. Her billing is timely and very easy to read and understand. We also receive a breakdown of the work and progress of each consultant for each week which is very helpful to us.”
“Heather and her team of seasoned Medicaid Contracting Consultants were brought in and immediately hit the ground running. HCPC consultants were able to successfully negotiate agreements with hundreds of PCPs and Specialists in multiple counties over a very quick 60-day window to help IlliniCare meet its access requirements.

My colleagues and I were extremely impressed by the experience, knowledge and results we saw from HCPC and would not hesitate to hire them again as the opportunity arises.’’
