Attorney Emily Casey will speak at a workers’ compensation and fee schedule seminar to be held at the Connecticut Bar Association’s 2020 Legal Conference on September 15th. Emily’s session, “How to Use the Official Connecticut Fee Schedule for Hospitals and Ambulatory Surgical Centers – A Primer for Attorneys,” will cover the basics of how to apply the Connecticut Fee Schedule correctly. The fee schedule, which went into effect April 1, 2015, applies to all workers’ compensation bills incurred at hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers.
Emily has worked in the Healthcare law section of TCORS for seven years and represents thirteen hospitals. Since the implementation of the Official Connecticut Fee Schedule for Hospitals and Ambulatory Surgical Centers in 2015, Emily has presented legal and factual argument at many hearings before the Workers’ Compensation Commission on the issue of the correct reimbursement of hospital bills.
“Emily Casey is Connecticut’s premier authority on the proper application of the fee schedule and her work has resulted in substantial revenue for Connecticut hospitals,” said Partner Robert D. Tobin. TCORS has represented Connecticut hospitals for over 50 years and worked on Workers’ Compensation recoveries for three decades. The Firm has won several significant Connecticut Supreme Court cases on behalf of Connecticut hospitals helping them recover full and fair payment for their services instead of being forced to accept arbitrary payment discounts imposed by repricing companies.
“The fee schedule was put in to provide certainty in medical reimbursements. Prior to the fee schedule’s application to hospitals, insurance companies and bill review vendors were gaming the system and grossly underpaying Connecticut hospitals. Unfortunately that has not changed with the fee schedule,” Mr. Tobin added.
