Dedicated Healthcare Collections Team

The Weltman Healthcare Collection Group focuses on addressing the unique nature of your delinquent accounts. Our goal is to efficiently manage your accounts, providing insights, reports and results to make sure your claims are being worked and completed in a timely manner.

Our Initial File Review Is Critical To Your Success

Rather than just processing your matters without looking for alternatives, we often come up with ideas or approaches you may not have considered, leveraging our experience to formulate a plan we believe is the best way to proceed, always with your business interests in mind. By regularly appearing in various courts, we know the numerous court requirements in the jurisdictions within which we practice and have developed relationships with many Court personnel who have confidence in our firm’s record in handling matters in a timely and professional manner.

Comprehensive Local and Nationwide Service

Weltman offers services within our traditional footprint states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania. We also offer nationwide services through our established network of experienced attorneys for issues outside of our footprint states where we work with local counsel to ensure that all cases are handled and reported effectively, providing you a consistent level of service and accountability in every state.

Reporting and Communications

Weltman utilizes the Internet for e-mail and document transmission. Through our password-protected eClientNet, we provide you access to each account you place with our firm, progress reports detailing account activity, performance statistics, inventory lists and accounting information.
