Rockford's CRC Celebrates Two Years with Continued Rapid Growth Recovery of Unpaid Hospital Bills; Good Business in a Bad Economy
Date:10/24/2009

Consumers benefit from CRC's success at holding employers and insurance companies accountable for contracted bill payments to healthcare providers under a little known or understood, but mandated federal law called ERISA.

Rockford, IL (PRWEB) October 23, 2009 -- Millions of American workers struggling to pay their medical bills may not even be liable for them, according to a fast-growing private company in Illinois.

Celebrating its two year anniversary, Rockford-based CRC (Claims Recovery Company) diligently works to analyze denied claims and recover funds owed to hospitals by employer benefits packages.

The swift and solid growth CRC has seen during its short lifespan comes as no surprise to its founders. Chief Executive Scott Winslow, a former hospital CEO, understands the system--and the loopholes--which big insurance companies exploit. "Literally millions of dollars--perhaps billions--go unpaid because of denied claims from insurance companies. Many of these dollars are clearly payable by employers under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974," Winslow explains.

CRC's experts identify improperly denied bills through a complex process of research, review and application of federal laws. They have successfully resolved thousands of unpaid insurance bills totaling millions of dollars all over the U.S. since their start just two years ago. With over 170 million American workers covered by such plans, the potentially recoverable funds are staggering. Adds Winslow, healthcare reform is sure to add millions more workers to the pool.

Winslow cites data from the American Hospital Association that estimates the average payment to hospitals at about 35 cents paid for every dollar billed. "That's about $2 unpaid for every dollar that is paid," he said, adding, "The worst of these stories are the ones where the patient ends
