Healthcare Billing Commercial Appeals

How Federal ERISA Appeals Can Help

These seven hospitals and health care systems have a good balance of available funds for expansion and enough money to operate on a daily basis. During the Covid-19 epidemic, this is rare, as many other systems are either closing down or struggling. One thing that you can do is file Federal ERISA appeals on your aged claims. All of the commercial health insurance claims that have gone through their three state-level appeals and remain unpaid are eligible. Even though these claims may make a small amount of your overall cash flow, every penny counts. Contact us today to see how we can collect on those funds for you.
