ATA Law Review: We're Not Gonna Take It! How to Spot Lien-Based Treatment, Bust Referral Networks, and Fight Inflated Medical Bills
In this webinar you will learn the different types of medical funding models (doctors who self-finance, factoring, medical funding companies, etc.), how lien-based care and attorney/funding company/doctor referral networks work, and how to identify whether these issues exist in your claim at the earliest stage. You will also learn what kinds of documents exist to demonstrate the relationships between the "funding triangle" (doctors, lawyers, funding companies) and how billing experts can help analyze whether the medical expenses incurred by a plaintiff in a specific case were reasonable.
This webinar will discuss:
- Learn the brass tacks about how medical treatment is funded in cases involving lien-based treatment.
- Discover how the referral networks between attorneys, doctors, chiropractors, and funding companies works.
- Gain a better understanding of how these issues dramatically increase the medical bills in your cases and lead to increased exposure for verdicts and settlements.
- Identify how to spot whether attorney-directed treatment or lien-based care exists in your claims at the earliest stage.
- Find new tools to combat excessive medical bills and unnecessary medical care by utilizing billing experts and obtaining the necessary documents to show attorney/doctor/funding company relationships.
