Claims Management Solutions
Ott Cone & Redpath knows that it is all too common for third party payors to employ abusive practices designed to avoid payment of valid claims, including payment delays, erroneous claim denials and underpayments. These legally impermissible tactics can have a significant negative impact on medical providers' revenue stream.

Our customized claims management solutions include handling appeals of complex insurance coverage cases, ensuring payor compliance with legal requirements governing provider reimbursement and providing training to hospital staff of laws applicable to third party payors.
