Rockford's CRC Celebrates Two Years with Continued Rapid Growth Recovery of Unpaid Hospital Bills; Good Business in a Bad Economy

up losing everything they own trying to pay their healthcare bills."

In fact, Harvard University recently released a study stating that medical problems contributed to over 60% of all personal bankruptcies in the U.S. in 2007. CRC finds that health insurance companies frequently dispute their responsibility for bill payment and often, simply don't pay. These disputes can go on indefinitely. The unpaid charges with demand for payment can appear in the patient's mailbox even years after treatment.

Winslow credits his staff's unique depth of ERISA knowledge as the reason for the company's rapid growth in a slow economy. CRC seeks out specialists from the health care finance arena who have become experts in these complex federal regulations and laws.

"Employer based insurance is shorthand for ERISA," Winslow explains. "It is the employer who promised to pay the lion's share of their employees' health bills, usually 80 percent. The insurance company is the plan administrator." The explanation of benefits from the insurance company is daunting for people unfamiliar with the lingo. Many see the large dollar amounts and just freeze; the numbers can be shocking.

While CRC does not work directly with consumers, its resolution of claims for hospitals and other providers is really on behalf of the patient.

Companies competing for talent offer good health benefits. According to Winslow, "Any promise made to a worker is called a benefit. ERISA law states that if a company makes a promise of a benefit to a worker and breaks the promise, they may have violated the law and could be subject to penalties, including fines and even jail.

Winslow advises anyone covered by an employer plan to check with their Human Resources department to make sure that all benefits under ERISA were received on disputed medical bills. "Or just go to a hospital that uses CRC, and we will do it all for you," h
