Personal Injury Healthcare Payments, Are You Getting Top Dollar?

 

 In Illinois there are laws to protect your healthcare claims. The health care lien act was established in 2003 and in summary the act provides 40% of the total settlement amount to be distributed to healthcare bills. Within the 40% half goes to “professionals” and the other half to “providers” the trick to the negotiation process is understanding what bills fall into which of these two categories. The one restriction in the act is that no one “professional” or “provider” can receive more than 33% of the settlement amount. The last part to understanding the negotiation process is the “Pro Rata Share” distribution. Simply are you getting your proportionate share of the settlement?
