My first response is "how are they staying in business? Are they just automatically re-signing contracts from 1980 without any review of their fees?
You might want to do a financial analysis of your revenue increase if your commercial payers reimbursed you at AT LEAST Medicare's fee schedule, and then again at 125%. By presenting their financial picture in a way that would help them understand what they're losing out on, perhaps one of them will be motivated to act.
If they don't want to re-negotiate any commercial contracts, they should at least get paid based on the commercial payer's straight fee schedule, which is likely more than your current contracts. You can contact your payer reps to get a look at the fee schedules, to see if they're more than your contract. I bet they are, depending on your specialty.
If they "see the light", make sure you budget in a raise for yourself. good luck!
