SUBROGATED HEALTH INSURER OR PLAN NAMED AS A DEFENDANT IN OHIO?
FOR OVER A QUARTER CENTURY INSURERS HAVE MADE RMI THEIR FIRST CALL!

RMI has handled Ohio-based health care and health insurer subrogation litigation for over a quarter century

  • RMI has extensive experience protecting subrogated interests in litigation involving:

                Standard health plans

                FEHBA (federal employee)

                Medicare Advantage

                Self-insured ERISA, and other health plans

Under Ohio law, a defendant has only 28 days from the date the summons and complaint or amended complaint are first received in which to answer. The 28 days begins running as soon as the party or its agent (i.e., statutory agent, TPA, any office address, etc.) receives the suit papers. We all know this time can pass all too quickly during the press of ordinary business, while the court document is first associated with a particular member (or subscriber's relative) and eventually makes its way to the appropriate handler for the first time.

  • As our clients will attest, a timely phone call to RMI, even with limited information, can not only help stave off the potentially bad consequences of a late response, but ensure a maximum recovery.

  • Where the subrogated interest is not named as a party in litigation, the plan or TPA may later become involved through receipt of a pleadings, records subpoena or just a letter from the member's counsel. If the matter is in litigation, this would be the appropriate juncture at which the interest through our office should intervene in the suit.

  • RMI maximizes recoveries by aggressively representing the interests of health insurers with our knowledge of the ever changing landscape of health insurance subrogation law, special nuances of Ohio law, policy language and negotiation skills.

  • RMI serves as local Ohio counsel for various nationwide attorney health insurance subrogation networks!
