An estimated 1 in 3 adults with an established credit history — or 77 million people — are so far behind on their debts that their account has been put “in collections.” And statistics support that about half of these collection cases involve debt collectors seeking to collect on unpaid medical debt. This is a highly stressful situation that many plaintiffs in personal injury cases find themselves in.
HMR Funding can help to keep medical debt collectors at bay by paying for the plaintiff’s medical bills and even providing cash for living expenses as they recover from their accident. Plaintiffs who are injured often have no medical insurance or they may have limited funds to pay for the medical care they require. In other situations, they may have health insurance but high insurance deductibles cannot be afforded to pay or policy limits that are too low to provide desperately-needed medical care. We are personal injury medical funding experts and specialize in catastrophic cases, which many funding companies avoid.
We purchase medical accounts receivables associated with personal injury cases, typically where the plaintiff is uninsured or underinsured. We work with medical providers from a variety of specialties related to personal injuries, from imaging, pain management and physical therapy all the way up to neuropsychologists, orthopedists and spine surgeons. Whether it’s one bill or many medical bills associated with a catastrophic injury, we purchase these medical bills associated with personal injury cases on a non-recourse basis, meaning if for some reason the legal case is lost, the plaintiff does not have to pay us back. The plaintiff can concentrate on recovery and the attorney can concentrate on achieving the best case outcome.
A better understanding of the seriousness of a TBI can help your client get the treatment they may need and the verdict they deserve.
During this webinar with John Zacharias and his nationally renowned team at Advantage Healthcare Systems you’ll learn about TBI identification and treatment options for your clients.
– TBI Assessment – Simple screening options (including a TBI questionnaire)
– Process and timeframes for evaluation, such as neurologist, then neuropsychologist
– Types of care; Day program, In-home and Telemedicine
– Early identification and better medical results
By taking advantage of the core competency of a full service medical funding company, medical providers can receive prompt payment for aging personal injury accounts receivable. By adopting this cash management strategy you will also reduce the inherent administrative costs associated with tracking these cases, thus increasing your bottom line. This frees your practice from the hassle of vetting, tracking and pursuing collections on your personal injury cases, allowing you to concentrate on what you do best, caring for your patients.
From a medical provider’s standpoint the risk involved with accepting a Letter of Protection (LOP) for third party liability medical services is often just too risky. Why accept the risk of non-payment when working with a medical funding company, like HMR Funding, can guarantee prompt fair payment and free the medical provider from the stress of having to wait months, if not years, for the underlying legal case to close?
Here’s the catch 22: Jane is unable to pay for the medical care she may need; but because she cannot afford to seek medical treatment, she may not be able to prove the extent of her injuries in order for her attorney to fight for the fair settlement she deserves. That is a tough situation for someone who was injured at no fault of her own.
So what are Jane’s options?
This was a tough premises liability case where my client fell and struck his head on the hard floor sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
When I was first introduced to this client he was both irrational and suicidal. As a result of his most recent head trauma he was suffering from forgetfulness, his personality adversely changed as he was even more easily upset than usual. He was depressed all the time, his vision was blurred and he was very sensitive to light – therefore he was no longer able to umpire baseball games. He had a general feeling of worthlessness. His past medical records showed he attempted to hang himself years earlier so we knew he was of a fragile mental state…
