Defending Medical and Non-Medical Billing Services Companies
Companies that provide billing services run a serious risk of being sued for negligence when billing personnel make errors and mistakes. For example, health care providers often claim to rely on medical billing service companies to obtain proper certifications from the insurance companies. If certification is not obtained, the provider can suffer a substantial financial loss, resulting in a claim against the billing services company to recover damages. Because billing services companies tend to deal in a high-volume business with mistakes and errors often running across an entire line, these types of lawsuits can easily expose a company to hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.
The attorneys in Kaufman Dolowich’s Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Practice Group have decades of combined experience defending clients in claims arising from the performance of their professional duties. We represent individuals and organizations facing all types of professional liability claims, from errors in handling billing accounts to allegations of fraud and misconduct. Our lawyers are particularly well-positioned to provide guidance and representation to medical and non-medical billing services companies facing professional liability lawsuits. We have a strong understanding of the billing services industry and the complex issues that often arise in these types of cases. Additionally, the members of our practice are licensed in multiple jurisdictions, allowing us to litigate cases in state and federal courts throughout the country.
Protecting Our Clients’ Businesses and Professional Reputations
When allegations of professional negligence and misconduct surface, our professional liability attorneys take immediate action to assess the potential risks and exposures associated with the claim. We carefully review the allegations with our clients and outline all available options. Recognizing that these types of cases can be very troublesome for billing services companies, we focus on protecting our clients’ reputation while resolving the matter in the most favorable manner possible.
