Maritime Medical Bill Reviews

Program Overview

One of the largest sources of expense for a ship owner or shipping company is the cost for ill or injured crew. No one knows when someone will get hurt or sick. Depending on what the problem is, bills can range from several hundred dollars to hundreds of thousand of dollars.

Trying to navigate the maze of billing procedures, CPT codes, and medical provider billing schemes requires time and expertise and this becomes even more complex when it involves a crew member. Generally, US hospitals do not know understand the complexities of crew medical billing issues.

We have the expertise, knowledge and proven ability to guide you through this confusing process and achieve reductions which are amongst the highest in the industry. From some of the largest P&I Clubs and shipping companies in the world, to single vessel owners, we at HudsonTactix are contacted daily to review and save our clients’ money by negotiating reductions to medical bills. 

Expertise

There are a multitude of medical bill review companies. What distinguishes HudsonTactix from the others is the amount of money we actually save our clients and our understanding of needs and priorities of ship owners and managers.

On average HudsonTactix obtains reductions of 60 cents on the dollar (60%) from medical providers. Our competitors typically average 20%-40%.

Our business model emphasizes negotiations over the use of prearranged “preferred rates”. Our competitors will tout the use of preferred medical networks or utilizing prearranged “preferred rates”. Our belief is that when utilizing prearranged providers or preferred networks the medical provider takes the arrangement into account when preparing the invoice.

HudsonTactix takes each invoice and negotiates from the invoice. No pre-arranged contract rate, no courtesy discounts. Hard, effective negotiations.

Since 2011, Hudson Tactix has reviewed more than $5,000,000 in medical charges and saved over $3,000,000.

Every bill, no matter how large or small, below the deductible or above the deductible should be reviewed.

Can you afford to pay an additional 30%, 40% or even 60%?

Process

The process is straightforward and effortless.

Either contact HudsonTactix directly at: medbillreview@hudsontactix.com; or scan and email the bills to medbillreview@hudsontactix.com. We will take it from there.

Once we have reviewed the bills, obtained the reductions, and received a signed agreement from the providers, we will request the funds to pay the provider.

Costs of the Service

Because all clients have different needs, we offer several rate options. If you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact us.
