Out-of-Network Claim Reimbursements Attorneys

Out-of-network (OON) health care providers experience numerous challenges that extend beyond the operating room. Navigating the dynamic healthcare landscape, in addition to modifying practice operations to comply with new and existing regulations under federal and state laws, can take your resources away from what matters most — providing high-quality patient care. The deny, delay, and deflect tactics used by insurance companies also make it harder to obtain a fair and timely reimbursement for your services.

These challenges have increased driving practices to adjust to the many new requirements under the No Surprises Act, that went into effect January 1, 2022.

At Cohen Howard, we understand these challenges. As an experienced health care reimbursement law firm, we are focused solely on increasing revenue for OON providers from commercial insurance companies. We strive to ensure our clients are paid what is rightfully owed for services rendered. We understand the importance of a trusting provider-patient relationship and aim to indirectly help providers strengthen that bond by minimizing the financial impact of surgeries for patients.

Our Services

The Cohen Howard team has extensive experience handling a wide range of claim reimbursement issues for providers specializing in crafting prelitigation demands using substantive medical and legal arguments. In the event we are not able to secure a settlement through out prelitigation demands, we will pursue litigation as warranted. We collaborate with surgeons of all specialties: plastic and reconstructive, neurosurgery (brain, spine, nerve), general surgery, emergency and trauma, maxillofacial, vascular, transplant and thoracic surgery. 

Our Process

When you select Cohen Howard as your health care reimbursement law firm, you’ll benefit from our comprehensive process that yields results.

We’ll start by conducting a strategic claim evaluation to assess the viability of your claim portfolio and determine the best course of action for each claim by reviewing prior appeals and relevant facts of each case.  We’ll assign your case to prelitigation or litigation to pursue the appropriate reimbursement on your behalf. As skilled negotiators, we will also navigate the process of reaching a settlement with the insurance company throughout the process.

We offer decades of combined experience in maximizing surgical claims reimbursements and have recovered tens of millions of dollars in lost revenue.
