Healthcare Legal Services
The Turek Law Firm’s healthcare legal services are built on an exceptional knowledge base and extensive work experience. Not only do we have comprehensive experience in litigation and legal support for healthcare providers, but all of the firm’s attorneys have extensive knowledge of, experience with, and exposure to the business of healthcare. Our experience includes in-depth knowledge of how healthcare providers — hospitals, physician practices, physicians, clinical providers and the business partners that support providers — work, function and thrive.
Further, our firm has had a historical focus on healthcare reimbursement since it was founded in 2001. Our services address all types of reimbursement-related disputes that arise from all types of payers for healthcare providers. These payers include Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare Managed Care, Medicaid Managed Care, commercial health insurance (both PPO and HMO payers), Workers' Compensation, Veterans Administration, and any other governmental or non-governmental payers.
Finally, The Turek Law Firm has created and provides a full-service Healthcare Revenue Recovery Program for healthcare providers. The Program is intended to provide the firm’s legal support to your existing healthcare revenue recovery efforts. Where a healthcare provider either runs out of resources or the ability to continue to pursue reimbursement, we will take up your cause. This “safety net” legal service provides a way to complete the revenue cycle process, drive higher revenue recovery on your healthcare accounts receivables, and avoid losing reimbursement disputes because you do not have the ability to continue the fight.
Applying this knowledge and experience, The Turek Law Firm provides the following specific services to healthcare providers and companies that work within the healthcare industry:
