Grant & Weber takes great pride in the fact that since 1994 we have successfully maintained a Third Party Liability (“TPL”) department. We have carefully structured a series of investigative procedures that enable us to identify and retrieve accounts that might otherwise be lost as they pass through a facility’s operational protocols. Grant & Weber’s Third-Party Liability Services Division has effected the collection of millions of dollars in claims on behalf of our clients, and has been intimately involved in the development of Third Party Liability policies, procedures and recoveries. Our numerous years of experience in this industry afford us the expertise to determine Best Business Practices relating to Third-Party Liability recoveries.
With over 50 years of combined experience in healthcare litigation, Grant & Weber offers a training program for its clients and their staff on Third Party Liability issues at no extra charge. We will return accounts not identified as TPL and educate our clients to help them understand what accounts qualify for TPL placement.. Our TPL Director, Denise Williams, has over 24 years in paralegal experience and has achieved an extensive amount of TPL knowledge. Our TPL Collection Manager, Jim Grace, has over 14 years in TPL experience and our In-House Legal Counsel, Reid Steinfeld, Esq., has handled numerous matters for Grant & Weber since the inception of the department. Grant & Weber TPL Recovery Specialist’s boast a required minimum of 3 years experience.
Grant & Weber has effective and thorough procedures in place, when reviewing Medi-cal and Medicare accounts within 120 days, to determine whether or not those accounts are eligible for third party placement. This is a critical step in recovering TPL claims, and is often overlooked by most healthcare providers or billed for a minimum recovery on the claim. By allowing Grant & Weber the opportunity to review these claims in our 120-day program, we can greatly increase your recovery rates. Our in-house legal counsel and paralegals, proficiently trained to explicitly identify TPL claims, review all accounts. We also provide detailed reporting to specify the status of accounts reviewed by our TPL professionals. If we do not locate a viable third party, Grant & Weber will cancel and return the file to the client for appropriate action.
