Monday, March 11, 2013 – Ezra Zucker has been named Chief Executive Officer of Value Healthcare Services, the first company dedicated to patient bankruptcy receivables.
“I am honored to help build a company that will fill a major void in the healthcare industry,” says Zucker. “The number one reason for bankruptcy filings in the United States is healthcare related expenses. However, most healthcare facilities do not have the systems in place to maximize recoveries on patient bankruptcies and it’s costing the industry billions of dollars at a time when every dollar is crucial.”
Zucker will oversee a team of bankruptcy professionals with the goal of serving an underachieving segment of the revenue cycle. The major benefits of properly filing on all patient bankruptcies include:
- · Decreased Liability! Avoidance of Compliance Issues by Recovering BK’s Properly
- · Up to 25% Recovery with Absolutely Zero Patient Contact
- · 100% Free Patient Bankruptcy Notification, Fully Automated & Secure System
Value Healthcare Services, headquartered in Lawrenceville, Georgia, has satellite offices across the country.
