Texas Prompt Pay Attorney
Doctors and other medical professionals provide an immensely valuable public service, and they deserve to be compensated fairly for their hard work and dedication. Unfortunately, many insurance companies engage in practices that are intended to deprive medical care providers of the compensation to which they are entitled. In order to help resolve this problem, Texas enacted the Texas Prompt Payment Act in 2003, which is geared towards helping medical professionals get their due compensation.
Under the terms of the Texas Prompt Pay Act, doctors and other medical service providers who are not fully compensated for their work within specific timeframes may be able to recover compensation through a legal claim. If you are a medical professional in Texas who is experiencing difficulty receiving payment for your work, the attorneys at Williams Kherkher understand how frustrating it can be to have to deal with this type of hassle, but want you to know that there are steps you can take to get the payments you are owed.

Some medical professionals may find themselves in an especially strong position to file a Prompt Payment claim. Pursuing this type of legal action requires the resources necessary to effectively interact with legal counsel in the development of the claim. From technical difficulty to an arbitration process that can be fairly lengthy in some cases, it is important that those pursuing a claim be fully equipped to pursue the claim from beginning to end.
Additionally, those pursuing this type of legal action typically need a high volume of commercial insurance claims in order to make the effort worth their time and resources. Generally speaking, the greater the volume of claims and the more significant the difference between contracted and billed rates, the greater the likelihood of a substantial settlement becomes.
