You've provided expensive healthcare goods and services to a patient, and getting payment for these treatments is becoming an issue. Now what?
Health care professionals are often shy about taking measures against patients to collect payments. With the nature of the industry being to heal and to help, physicians and their respective hospitals view taking legal action as a method of last resort, if that. But the fact remains that medical treatment is very costly, and the money to perform such procedures must come from somewhere.
In some cases, your patient may not be able to afford to pay his or her medical bills, either before or after the circumstances of the provided treatment. Sometimes insurance companies will try to dodge covering the expenses of necessary surgeries and prescriptions. Occasionally the patient can afford the payments but simply will not pay. No matter the situation, we can help -- either through working out payment options or exercising all legal means.
When Suing Isn't Necessary
Taking your case to court is usually not the ideal solution, which is why we explore all available options before taking this step. Sometimes just employing an attorney and having that attorney deliver official notification is enough to get the wheels turning. In fact, rarely does a collections suit actually go to trial.
Richard N. Thompson can work with you and the involved parties to come to reasonable terms for payment. Only when able parties are flat-out refusing to pay do we go to such lengths as to put your case before a judge. Contact us today so we can provide you with legal advice specific to your case.
