HCRG provides a data driven, results oriented and fully comprehensive WCAB lien defense support service line. We bring over 10 years of Lien Negotiation, Lien Litigation management, Settlement Experience and a wealth of supporting data to the marketplace. We utilize our proprietary software’s data mining capability to analyze and predict the trajectory of liens, navigating them toward their best outcomes. HCRG has been very successful at planning and executing high level defense strategies.
Compliance requirements mandated by SB863 combined with an increase in medical provider fraud have made the litigation management of liens increasingly difficult and complicated. Picking the right lien defense partner to navigate this ever changing environment is more important than ever in today’s Workers’ Compensation landscape.
HCRG’s proven approach entails implementing a comprehensive plan of action complete with a cost benefit analysis that works seamlessly to aggressively settle liens on behalf of our clients. Our team of Hearing Representatives have years of experience in their field and will utilize their knowledge of regulatory procedures, Judges, and the WCABs to produce the best recommendations and results. Aiding in this process is our proprietary software that tracks all Dismissals, Notices of Intent, and Withdrawals. This enables us to analyze results against each provider. If engaging in bulk settlements, this data facilitates faster settlement turnaround times.
HCRG places a case search on every file referred. If your file is placed on calendar, we track the type of appearance, date of appearance, location, Judge, and time.
