Healthy Plushas partnered with the GRG Recovery Group to utilize the ERISA (Employment Retirement Income Security Act) which is a set of federal mandates under the U.S. Department of Labor that allows Healthcare Providers to appeal commercial insurance claims from years past.
• Appeals are executed at a federal level, as opposed to state level
• Healthcare Providers are given the same rights under federal jurisdiction as their Patients
• Healthcare Providers earn ERISA protection when they treat Patients who have self-funded employer benefits
• Applies to self-funded and fully-funded employer benefit plans
What is HCR?
The advantages are very simple: NO UPFRONT COST NO LITIGATION NO RISK - the recovery fee is contingent on realized recovery.
What are benefits of HCR?
Every year, Healthcare Providers across the U.S. are writing off millions of dollars in commercial claims. To address this problem, GRG (GRG Recovery Group) has perfected a claims recovery method using U.S. Department of Labor ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) mandates in an effort to reopen the timely-filing windows on previously closed commercial claims. If a commercial claim is found to be non-compliant with ERISA mandates, identified claims dating back to January 1, 2010 have the ability to be appealed on behalf of the Provider. GRG is dedicated to helping Providers bring dead claims to life, and reward Providers with the reimbursements that they ultimately deserve.
