While hospitals have long pursued liens as a method of increasing cash collections, did you know that processing liens, when done thoughtfully, should improve your patient experience? When a patient has been a victim to another’s negligence, he/she commonly does not understand that the responsible party’s insurance won’t pay medical bills as they are incurred. Fortunately, proceeds should arrive upon final settlement, but this can take months or even years, in some situations. With no other means for immediate collection, many hospitals will place patient bills into default and pursue collections.

Disability is a lengthy and arduous process; waiting on a case to be determined by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for disability can be a daunting experience. Claimants are commonly faced with medical issues, mounting medical bills, and little to no income. 67% of applications are denied after the initial claim; reconsiderations are denied at an even higher rate, 87%. Of the denials, a significant number of cases appeal and are reviewed by the Appeals Council for an Administrative Law Judge decision. This process takes at least 18 months and can take as long as 24-36 months.

On September 9, 2019, the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims invalidated federal regulations related to reimbursement of a Veteran’s cost of emergency medical care at non-VA facilities. Specifically, the Court held that the VA must reimburse Veterans for out-of-pocket emergency medical expenses not covered by the Veteran’s health insurance contract (e.g., deductible and coinsurance amounts).
