As a leading provider of third party liability business services, we have a proven track record of helping medical groups and hospitals recover more revenue.
Who We Are
Since 1984, the principals and staff of Meyer, Christian & Associates, Inc. (MCA) have been identifying and recovering millions of dollars in other party revenue for clients that span the managed care health network, including some of the nation’s largest HMOs, hospitals, and medical groups as well as PPOs, IPAs, TPAs, self-insured employers, and group heath carriers. With nearly thirty years in the industry, MCA’s principals helped pioneer the entire field of Third Party Liability recovery for medical groups and hospitals with managed care contracts.
MCA created its own internal mechanism and protocols for networking the entities involved in specific TPL cases, effectively performing joint recovery for medical groups, hospitals, and health plans on cases in which all have right of recovery. MCA has also developed an extensive investigative and research department that is networked to state and local courts and law enforcement agencies.
Industry Practices and Compliance
MCA always acts in full compliance with both HIPAA and the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, so our clients can always be confident that their patients are treated professionally and courteously. MCA is well acquainted with both the Federal ERISA laws and the California law related to subrogation claims made on behalf of capitated medical provider groups and how to effectively respond to and address objections raised by attorneys representing patients.
We represent clients including hospitals, medical provider groups, and doctors throughout the state of California and have successfully recovered millions of dollars in revenue that our clients would have otherwise been unable to recover.
The MCA Difference
Easily the most experienced recovery specialist in the managed care industry, MCA’s staff of recovery specialists average over 30 years of experience working accounts on behalf of the health care industry, handling Insurance Recovery, Third Party Liability, and patient collections. MCA's proven track record with accounts is even more relevant in California considering MCA's extensive experience with the heath care, insurance, and legal communities in this state.
A Local Presence
MCA has an extremely high penetration into California markets, which assures that MCA is not only extremely knowledgeable in all areas of operations in California, including extensive experience with state laws and statutes pertaining to TPL contracts and reimbursement, but has viable working relationships with all local HMOs, providers, and attorneys. This existing network is instrumental in accelerating the identification process as well as in achieving the full networking of all players on any given case, especially considering MCA's positive reputation and relationships with the legal community and insurance adjusters. These positive relationships extend, of course, to the patient members as well.
Never leaving clients in the dark about their accounts, MCA provides monthly or custom updates and progress reports, the ability for clients to set up remote terminals and log in to MCA's system to do ad hoc look ups as desired, and full access to recovery specialists and in-house counsel. There's always someone to talk to about any questions or issues and open access to account information.
