Information We Collect
• Information You Provide to Us Voluntarily.
o We will collect data from you that you proactively provide. For example, if you use our “Contact Us” form on the Website or if you provide us with feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect the information that you voluntarily provide in the form or email in order to send you a reply.
o We collect data from you that you provide via our on-line questionnaire, if you choose to respond to the questionnaire on-line (you may also respond in writing, by mail). We are a healthcare claim subrogation company. We partner with health insurance companies, third party administrators, self-funded employers and any other organizations that pay for medical claims. We are responsible for identifying claims that should have been paid by someone other than your health plan, such as an automobile insurance carrier. By responding to our treatment questionnaire, you are assisting us in determining if your claims should be paid by a third party. This allows your health plan to recover money that they already paid out on your behalf. Responding to this questionnaire is a requirement of your health plan, although you are not required to respond on-line. The information you provide to us through the questionnaire will be used solely for our subrogation services. It will never be sold. Any disclosure will be only as necessary to carry out subrogation services and as permitted by law.
