It is one of those horrible thoughts but one day many of us will be the victim of some rather unpleasant sickness or injuries which will need some form of treatment. When the bills come in the need to get it paid off can be quite worrying. This is where the idea of medical liens or medical lien funding has become so popular to stop some disastrous situations arising.
It is unfortunate that on some occasions, people who have been injured will certainly be able to claim for the medical bills etc but this can take some time since the case will probably have to go to court. Not only is this time consuming, it can also be very scary for the person who was injured since they may be held responsible and have to sell their hard earned belongings if the case is not found in their favor.
Of course, insurance companies will normally pay out for work which has to be done but let them get just a hint of someone else being to blame and they will certainly not want to do this. Again, since court cases can take up to ten years or more to be finished, the insurance company could conceivably refuse to pay for the treatment until the court is finished with the case. Enter the third party companies who take over the task of paying for the treatment, for a fee naturally, and wait until all the legal matters have been exhausted to receive payment for those fees paid such a long time ago. What this does for the facility, and those people who may be involved in physiotherapy etc, is to guarantee that they will be paid their fees within thirty days. This means then that the facility can afford to tap this market that it would normally have sidestepped for fear of not receiving their payments.
Patients will get all the treatment that is necessary without worrying about paying out bills before court cases are settled, or if they will be landed with the bill in the end and doctors will be far more willing to carry out the care with the facility in question because their fee payments are guaranteed. Although these third party companies do charge a discount on all expenses that they take on, it is far better for all concerned since all the parties will be serviced. They do take the risk of not getting paid at all, or having to wait for a number of years before the court case is settled, but in the end both parties can have settled lives and this can be a very profitable business indeed.
It is obvious that in the past hospitals and clinics were often overburdened with chasing debts and patients whose insurance either was revoked, or could not be accessed to cover treatment that was needed. Patients would often have to mortgage or second mortgage their homes and would end up in and ever deepening debt spiral although they had done nothing wrong. We must all be grateful that these schemes exist today.
