Our medical/legal claims consulting services include, but are not limited to, the following services to assist in the equitable resolution of claims:
ReMed’s legal nurse consultant reviews which are performed by highly experienced legal nurse consultants are an excellent resource that claim and legal professionals have found invaluable for early resolution of personal injury claims in a fair, equitable and cost-effective manner.
Our legal nurse consultant services, which include chronological medical record/bill analysis reviews and demand package reviews, exceed the typical industry standards compared to our competitors who offer similar reviews.
Our insurance industry clients have repeatedly expressed that ReMed provides critically relevant and detailed information that other medical review IT products or review vendors miss that is helpful to their analysis and decisions about pending claims. The reviews help adjusters increase their productivity, set accurate reserves and close claims sooner.
Legal professionals involved in the claims industry are extremely impressed with ReMed's nurse work product and the formal medical expert reports generated by independent medical experts. They often choose to use the preliminary work performed by ReMed or our medical experts for purposes of litigation.
ReMed’s medical and chiropractic personal injury reviews are performed by experienced board-certified practitioners and offer unique features with cost-effectiveness and non-biased opinions in mind.
When a medical or chiropractic review is requested, our legal nurse consultants review the records, prepare a summary and submit the file with pertinent questions to the appropriate specialty physician. The physician then provides their expert opinions in a formal report regarding causation, relatedness, medical necessity, wage loss and permanency. The opinions expressed in the experts’ reports are held to a reasonable degree of medical certainty and document the objective foundation or basis for their opinions.
Some of the specialty areas offered include, but are not limited to, orthopedic, neurologic, pain management, general medicine, physical medicine, psychiatric, dental, plastic surgery, and radiology.
ReMed’s expert review process decreases the amount of time spent by physicians reviewing documents; thereby, decreasing the expert review fees charged to the client. Medical expert review fees are typically 4 to 10 times higher an hour than a legal nurse consultant. The experts focus their attention to the specific information that a claims professional or legal representative is seeking in order to make informed settlement or litigation decisions.
The experts that ReMed uses are located throughout the country and are not employed or contracted by ReMed. They are independent practitioners who have agreed to review claims of injury submitted by ReMed clients and have also agreed to make themselves available for deposition or trial testimony.
Use of independent experts eliminates accusations of bias in the expert review process. If a client requests a specialist in a particular region or venue, our legal nurse consultants will identify and secure a qualified expert to perform the requested review.
Medical and chiropractic physician review charges are directly passed onto the client without any mark-up in the billed fees.
