The Practice of Care: A Provider’s Guide
Personal Injury Claim Resources for Healthcare Professionals
One of the many common goals we share with healthcare providers is helping your patients recover from their injuries. Unfortunately, the insurance companies impose requirements that make it difficult for providers to get paid and patients to get the care they need. Our provider resources blog aims to make the process easier with twice-monthly posts that offer straightforward and practical advice. We welcome your questions and look forward to your comments.

“I have patients with injury claims and I deal with their attorneys. Dean and his office always take especially good care of my patients. I have frequently relied on Dean to advise me how to help my patients through the medical-legal process. He is always there for my office and my patients.”

When was the last time you read an Independent Medical Examination (IME) report recommending additional care?
After reading the ‘Independent’ report, you quickly see their opinions are not based on reality.
“The other driver was going 45 mph when he hit me.”
“My car was totaled.”
“It was an incredibly hard impact.”
What do these three statements have in common?
Not too long ago we had a client who was crossing the street in downtown Portland. While crossing the road, a car ran a red light and hit our client, causing a compound fracture of their femur, and many other injuries.
What do you do when your patient’s Personal Injury Protection benefits have run out and they still need treatment?
Do you stop treating? Do you treat them and hope you get paid? What if they can’t make any payments for your service?
