The Nan Gallagher Law Group represents providers in their ongoing efforts to obtain adequate reimbursement for their services from various payors. Our services range from negotiating settlements with payors, to vigorously pursuing the claims in state or federal court to obtain fair reimbursement.

The Nan Gallagher Law Group works with providers who experience problems with their participation in the Medicare and Medicaid programs, from enrollment issues to recovery audits. The incidence of Medicare recovery audits against healthcare providers is on the rise as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has identified physician “overpayments” as a promising source of financing. Through the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) program and other initiatives, Medicare increasingly denies providers payments or audits them for alleged overpayments. The Medicare attorneys at The Nan Gallagher Law Group regularly defend healthcare providers in Medicare Part B recovery audits and appeals. We have successfully assisted clients in all stages of the Medicare appeals process.

We have successfully defended providers from claims by private health plans and private payor auditors who attempt to force providers to refund reimbursement based on patient Medicare coverage. The Nan Gallagher Law Group provides state of the art and cutting-edge billing and coding counseling to its clientele. We also have longstanding and valued affiliations with billing and coding experts nationwide to supplement the legal advice we provide.

The Nan Gallagher Law Group’s attorneys are dedicated to the practice of collections law. We have constructed a comprehensive legal collection service representing a broad range of clients in the recovery of accounts receivables. Supported by a professional, courteous and experienced staff, The Nan Gallagher Law Group stands ready to supply creative, innovative and time saving approaches to your practice’s debt collection needs, including instances where patients have received and retained checks sent to them by their health insurance carriers to be signed over to you. Plus, having a law firm handle all collections for your practice from the outset may increase the likelihood of expedited recovery of proceeds for you. We offer a competitive percentage rate for fees for our collections services, which, in many instances, is less than that offered by medical billing and collections companies. Client satisfaction and service are paramount to our Firm’s practice. We also maintain a network of attorneys throughout the country to serve all of our clients’ debt collection needs.

The Nan Gallagher Law Group has been filing ERISA & State litigations on behalf of its valued healthcare clients for years. Experienced ERISA attorneys in the Firm fight for your right as an Out-of-Network provider to attain substantial reimbursement for the services you have rendered.
