Founded in 2011 by principals Susie White and Michelene Cleary, Cypress Healthcare Consultants provides clients an exceptional level of managed care credentialing and contracting expertise. With careers in the managed care industry that began in the mid-1980’s, Ms. White and Ms. Cleary have extensive experience in managed care plan development and operations, physician network contracting and providers, hospital contracting and physician-hospital organization management, and post-acute provider contracting and credentialing.

Until very recently, commercial managed care had only a tangential impact on health care providers serving patients in the post-acute care environment; however, with recent expansions in both managed Medicare plans and managed Medicaid plans, the work of Cypress Healthcare Consultants has focused extensively on contracting for skilled nursing facilities and other post-acute facilities and providers.   As the firm continues to grow, our portfolio of clients and their respective service lines also grows, and we now serve physicians, ancillary providers, and acute hospitals in addition to our post-acute clients.
