We are very encouraged by our many successes in helping doctors across the country
New York, New York (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Richard Quadrino of Quadrino Schwartz is assembling legal teams across the country to assist medical providers in today’s challenging environment. Quadrino Schwartz is using a combination of its many years of successful ERISA claims and litigation experience with its decades of insurance industry and class action experience to enhance these legal teams.
“We are very encouraged by our many successes in helping doctors across the country,” said Richard Quadrino, a founding member of the firm. “The more that medical providers stand up for themselves, the more they realize that they should have done so long ago,” Quadrino said. "This is especially true in the context of claim audits," said Quadrino, "where doctors have incorrectly assumed or have been improperly advised that health insurers could obtain a refund of monies previously paid to them on approved claims. Such refunds are either prohibited by ERISA or by State law." There are vast distinctions between Medicare and Medicaid, on the one hand, and privately funded plans, governed by ERISA, said Quadrino.
The attorney groups are addressing health insurer audits and also pursuing payments on large groups of denied ERISA-governed medical claims.
