What Our Members Are Saying

The benefits of size allows American Rheumatology Network to afford a best-in-class management team. The result is increased quality of care, revenue, and physician/staff satisfaction. The benefits of negotiating with size speak for themselves– we achieve savings from insurance to medication pricing. This model is the future of Rheumatology.

It is a well-run company that allows rheumatologists to focus on patient care instead of administrative tasks. It helps rheumatologists get reimbursed appropriately for the services they provide. Because it is a large group, it is able to negotiate for better infusion medication prices as well.

Joining ARN, as opposed to other larger health systems, is beneficial since ARN understands the nuances of the specialty of rheumatology. Administrative burdens are reduced and quantity discounts are especially beneficial.

95% of provider members report spending less time negotiating payer and supplier contracts since joining ARN.
