Provider files suit against Brightree
MADISON, Wis. – Family Care Medical Services is suing Brightree, an Atlanta-based HME billing service, for allegedly failing to make adequate efforts to collect debt on behalf of the company, according to an article in the Madison-St. Clair Record. Family Care Medical claims it lost more than $50,000 because the terms of its contract with Brightree were breached. In the suit, filed Dec. 11, 2012, the company claims it hired C&S Billing Center Corp. to send billing information to Medicare and Medicaid. The suit states that when Brightree acquired C&S Billing, it agreed to abide by the terms of Family Care’s original contract with C&S Billing, but it failed to follow through.
