“We enjoy a great working relationship with government entities such as Medicare, Medicaid and the VA as well as many ERISA contractors. MCS maintains a boutique, hands-on approach and we have significant clinical resources at our disposal, including an exclusive relationship with Healthcare Solutions Inc., which includes a 3,000 physician network and 70 pharmacists on staff that we can leverage to create medical models. These resources are in addition to our clinical staff that is well versed in lien processing and resolution,” said Synergy Settlement Services CEO, Jason Lazarus.
