Medical Providers: We can help you get the insurance company to pay you what you deserve.
We know that you work hard and do the best you can to make sick and injured people healthy again. We also know that your patients who were involved in a car accident have a hard time getting their insurance companies to pay your bills. Whether you’re a hospital or a solo chiropractor, we can help you get paid.
Insurance companies will second guess your treatment and will try to nickel and dime you on your bills.
We know how it goes. The insurance company will look over every bill and every record trying to find any way to deny paying you the money that you’re owed. They’ll send the patient to an “independent” medical examiner who owes your patient no medical duty and is not offering medical advice. That “independent” doctor will contradict your advice and find your patient healthy. The insurance company, based on this “independent” report, will continue to deny paying you your money. At best, they’ll delay payment as long as possible.
Forced by the insurance company denying your bills, you’re left either on the hook or suing your patient who can’t afford the services you performed.
No one wants to sue their patients. It’s bad business, especially if you’re a small provider. But what other recourse do you have?
That’s where we come in.
You don’t have to wait and hope your patient sues or comes up with the money. Instead, you can sue the insurance company directly, and we can help you do it.
Even if your patient is suing the insurance company, you should still hire us and intervene.
Don’t sit back on your heels and hope your patient is successful. Even if the patient is, they might not get the full amount of the bill.
Often, the patient will try to negotiate with you on how much you’d take on your bill. Then, they’ll pocket the difference between what they get from the insurance company and what they’re paying you. For example, on a $5,000 bill, they’ll negotiate with you to accept $2,000, they’ll get the full $5,000 from the insurance company, and then they’ll pocket the other $3,000. You’ll never know because you’re not part of the negotiations.
And, assuming the patient gets the full amount, that money goes to the patient. You have no control over what they do with the money.
On top of it all, attorney fees are coming out of that money as well. Fees for an attorney you have no say in choosing or relying on. That attorney may or may not:
- be up-to-date with the current law;
- know the ins and outs of this area;
- have sued in this area before;
- be afraid to take the case to trial; and
- even know the provider can intervene in a lawsuit.
If the patient loses the lawsuit, that’s it. You can’t sue later.
Okay, so why should you hire us?
Suing insurance companies is what we do. Taking cases to trial is also what was do. We’re trial lawyers.
This area of the law is also what we focus on. We sue insurance companies for clients involved in car accidents. We’re up-to-date on the law in this area. We’ve attended every single Institute of Continuing Legal Education No-fault Seminar since it started.
Can your lawyer say that?
Your bills don’t have to be $10,000+ for us to take your case.
Even if you provided a small service to the patient totaling a few thousand dollars, you can still sue and we can still represent you. Often, the small cases are the most important because that’s where the insurance company is most likely to put up a fight. And, if you get nickel and dimed on the smaller fees, that adds up over time.
So how do we get paid?
There are two ways we can get paid.
First, we’ll take your case on a contingency. That means, if you win, we get paid up to 1/3 of the amount received. If you don’t win, you don’t pay any attorney fees.
Second, under current law, the insurance company may have to pay attorney fees as a sanction. If they do, we’ll choose between either the contingency payment or the attorney-fee award. If we choose the attorney-fee award, then you get your bill in full.
We’ll explain this in further detail at your appointment.
The only thing you have to pay to sue are costs.
These are things like the filing fees, service of process fees, deposition costs, etc. Again, we’ll explain this in further detail when we meet in person.
You MUST act now. In some circumstances, you only have up to one year to act.
You only have up to one year from the date of the service performed to sue the insurance company. So you must act now.
It’s important you don’t wait. Call now and we’ll set up a time to meet. We’ll even go to your office to meet with you.
