Your health plan is dedicated to reducing healthcare costs. The Rawlings Group is a trusted business partner of your health plan and has been asked to review paid medical claims information and determine if another party may be responsible for the resulting medical treatments. Your medical claims include certain treatment billing codes that are often related to an accident or injury. This may include events such as an accident involving a moving vehicle, a slip and fall, injury on the job, medical malpractice, or a defective product.
No. The provider listed in the letter you received could be someone other than your physician. For example, this person could be an emergency room physician or radiologist who cared for you during your Date of Treatment period listed on the letter.
Yes. Confirming that your treatment was not related to an accident is important information for your health plan to know.
Rawlings will continue to attempt to contact you as your health plan expects members to cooperate in resolving these questions. Depending upon the plan you have, your health plan may pend claims until these questions are resolved.
Your health plan has contracted with The Rawlings Group to review medical claims that they have already paid to identify situations where another party may be responsible to pay those claims. By contract, The Rawlings Group is authorized to perform this service for the health plan, and complies with all legal requirements (HIPAA) and your health plan´s requirements for handling your protected health information.
Please call the toll-free number listed on the questionnaire that was mailed to you. A representative dedicated to your insurance carrier will be available Monday through Friday between 8:00AM and 8:00PM EST.

What information does the Rawlings Group have about me beyond that information provided through its Site(s)?
Our health plan clients provide us Personally Identifiable Health Information about their health plan members securely, in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), so we can determine whether claims they covered were paid correctly and by the correct party. We also obtain information from commercially available sources of claims, demographic and similar information. We do this to make sure the correct insurance carrier covers medical claims and to make sure we have the correct addresses and identifying information for people we need to contact to do our work.

We and our service partners use your Personally Identifiable Information to operate our site(s) and to deliver their services. For example, our online payment transaction service provider must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment on your account; release your payment information to the health plan that you paid through our site.
