HOUSTON – The Medical Journal of Houston has published an article by trial lawyers Ashish Mahendru and Darren Braun of Mahendru P.C. advising healthcare providers how they can use the Texas Prompt Pay Act to claim their rightful reimbursements from slow-paying insurance companies.
“Healthcare providers cannot, and should not, take it on the chin from insurance companies demanding contracts with low reimbursement rates and then compound the misery on a slow-pay or no-pay basis,” the two lawyers wrote.
The article, headlined “Keeping insurers’ slow-pay or no-pay tactics in check,” was published in the November 2018 issue of the Medical Journal of Houston.
“Traditionally, healthcare providers have been reluctant to take legal action and have instead opted to absorb these unpaid claims as a cost of maintaining a good relationship with the insurer. But as unpaid claims mount, healthcare providers should review their legal options,” the two lawyers wrote.
Mr. Mahendru, a top-rated Texas trial lawyer and founder of the Houston-based litigation boutique Mahendru P.C., represents businesses and individuals in a variety of disputes, ranging from contract issues to employment and trade secrets disputes. He is particularly successful at securing injunctions for the interference of business.
