Cardiac ChartsA Brazilian tourist was visiting friends and family in the New Jersey area and was admitted to Hackensack Hospital for a heart related condition. His travel policy offered minimum medical coverage for his condition.  For the entire episode of care, about seventeen days, his case amounted to over $500,000. After conducting a claims analysis, our negotiators were able to apply our cost containment methodology to successfully reduce the claim to $30,000, paying all parties, the hospital and physicians.
