Via Novus

Via Novus’ Litigation Matching & Recovery Services enable hospitals to leverage a unique and proprietary technology tool that has generated over $300 million in incremental cash recoveries for major healthcare insurance carriers over the past few years. Until now, this approach has not been available in the hospital market. Via Novus’s approach is to collect cash for the hospital from lawsuit proceeds – straight from an insurance carrier, not patients – when patients file lawsuits. This service relies on our proprietary and complex data mining techniques to identify otherwise impossible-to-find lawsuits from which the hospital is legally entitled to be paid.
