Medical Bill Clinic

We do not tolerate unreasonable medical bills

 

The problem

Hospital lien statutes and ordinances vary from state to state, even county by county, in some instances. But they have three things in common – they are written to favor the providers, the legal and factual issues they present are complex, AND the hospitals have and hide all the data.

This complexity and opacity places plaintiffs’ attorneys at a huge disadvantage when seeking to reduce unreasonable liens. The negotiation of a reasonable release is intentionally made difficult if not impossible without the help of professionals who are well-versed in medical billing, coding, and the law on reasonable value. The truth is providers often demand several hundred percent more than patients are legally obligated to pay but accept far less from more than 95% of patients. Worse yet, charges often exceed costs by more than 500%.

The solution

Fortunately, the law in most jurisdictions limits liens to “reasonable” charges, allows patients to challenge reasonableness, and in the end the data prevails. Attorneys nationwide come to Synergy’s Medical Bill Clinic to resolve doctor and hospital liens at a fraction of their full billed charges. How do we do this? Our team is well-versed and up-to-date with the relevant statutes, ordinances and case law. We also access internal cost data from all hospitals, nationwide, allowing us to estimate cost of care and thereby, estimate reasonable value. And we have deep experience managing the negotiation tactics and the appropriate responsive pressure points of the various hospital systems and major providers across the country. With this, we consistently achieve significant reductions to the direct benefit of the injury victim.

We’re passionate about this work. We simply will not tolerate these unreasonable liens.
