TRIMED

More and more individuals are losing healthcare coverage every day.  Many of those with coverage are seeing their deductibles and co-pays increased each year.  Additionally, fewer and fewer medical providers are willing to treat injured plaintiffs under a letter of protection (LOP) agreement.  TriMed Billing Solutions bridges the gap for injured plaintiffs who have no means of obtaining the medical care they need.  TriMed works with local orthopedic clinics, MRI facilities and physical therapists to arrange care on an LOP basis.  TriMed assumes the risk associated with LOP treatment and allows the medical providers to focus on what really matters – helping your clients heal and recover from their injuries.  TriMed is proud to provide treatment options throughout Alabama and is excited to announce its expansion into the Nashville metro area.  

If you would like more information regarding TriMed’s Nashville network, please call 205-578-2862

Get your clients the treatment they need and the settlement they deserve.  Why getting clients quicker care is good for your firm? In wrongful injury cases, Well States Healthcare is your best resource for settling cases earlier and getting paid faster.

Because we assist your paralegals and staff—coordinating appointments and medical referrals, and preparing files by gathering and organizing medical records and invoices, and summarizing treatment bills—it frees them up to work on other cases, saving you time and money.

And since we help coordinate your clients’ care, we minimize or eliminate gaps in treatment and coverage. We’re self-funded and have negotiated with healthcare providers to ensure that they won’t have to wait for a settlement to get paid. When they know we’ve taken care of the money, they can concentrate on taking care of your clients. And you can concentrate on winning settlements.

Clients get better faster. You get paid quicker. It’s a win-win for all parties.
