Managed Care Contracting and Collections Practice

The firm works closely with healthcare providers, including physicians' groups, handling the negotiation of contracts and fee schedules with payers, the management and resolution of any payment disputes, and collections matters, when agreement cannot be reached. The goal in all situations is to strengthen the relationship between providers and payers, so that reimbursements occur without issue and collections efforts are unnecessary.

The firm has successfully assisted healthcare providers obtain reimbursement for unpaid or underpaid claims, whether they have a payer contract or not. Fee structures are flexible and designed to reduce the up-front costs to the client, and includes contingency fee arrangements in payer collection matters. The firm has experience in litigating UCR payment disputes (disputes over the usual and customary rate of payment), failure to pay according to contracted fee schedules and negotiated rates, failure to pay for clinical pathology services (per the Palmetto Pathology decision), failure to pay for emergency care and failure to pay for HMO patients.

For an experienced attorney to protect your interests in payer contracting or collections, contact the firm or call 813-728-3400. The firm takes referrals from other lawyers.
