    Exclamation Recover Healthcare

    I have today received an email from a company calling themselves Recover Healthcare inviting me to join their "Physiotherapy Panel" On the surface it looks like yet another company setting themselves up as intermediaries for personal injury clients. They are offering the princely sum of 30.00 per session for treating "their" clients, paid 45 days after the end of treatment, with an online attendance, reporting and invoicing procedure.

    I am slightly concerned that the website they have given does not appear to exist! Has anyone else received a similar email or have any dealings with this company?

    Re: Recover Healthcare

    Never heard of them. Sounds dodgey as well..... Why would anyone treat someone and only charge for it after 45 days. What if the third party company goes under? Bad business practise.

    Re: Recover Healthcare

    I think not. These guys are bona fidae.

    The ones you need to watch are the ones who promiss you big fees paid very quickly. I have seen this in other personal injury work where I have been bitten. I work with a physio doing medicals and treatment.

    If the agency is not going to get paid for 60-90 days and they offer to pay you in say 7 days then they will build up millions in bank debt.

    There are lots of fly by night providers out there who may seem big, but have massive overheads 20-30 million of bank debt and are in fact on a knife edge.

    I hear this outfit may be secretly working with Norwich Union to take over all of their rehabilitation. About 50,000 patients per year. This is for the very reason that they aren't charging ridiculous fees or trying to get everyone into 12 sessions of treatment.

    They have sent me 20 cases and I have been paid bang on terms every time.

    Bring it on

    I too have been aproached by RHL and could not find a website, but I told them that our fees were 35.00 and terms 28 days and they agreed to them imedialtely.
