A new contract with Quality Health Management (QHM), a third-party administrator for some international insurance companies, means that international patients served by QHM patients will no longer be handled on a case-by-case basis.

For such patients served by QHM, ColumbiaDoctors has traditionally executed single-case agreements.

“Rates will not change, but we can now serve these patients more easily and quickly, with no more administrative obstacles to getting them in the door,” said Beth Mayers, senior director of managed care contracting for ColumbiaDoctors.
