Rising Medical Solutions Teams with HFN on Ill. Comp Program

November 21, 2005

Rising Medical Solutions Inc. has formed a strategic partnership with HFN, Inc., an Illinois PPO network, to deliver integrated provider network / medical management solutions to payer organizations throughout Illinois.

While the companies have worked together for years, the formalized partnership was reportedly spawned by the new changes in Illinois Workers’ Compensation law.

As Illinois-based companies, both Rising and HFN have an interest in helping Illinois payer and provider organizations experience a smooth transition under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Reform Bill HB2137 which implements a new medical fee schedule and new standards for utilization review services and medical bill handling.

The Rising / HFN alliance will reportedly provide clients with a cohesive suite of cost containment services, with HFN delivering a robust Workers’ Compensation Provider Network and Rising delivering medical bill review and utilization review programs.

Headquartered in Chicago, Rising Medical Solutions (www.risingms.com) is a medical-financial solutions organization offering medical cost containment and care management services. With offices, providers and case managers nationwide, Rising is a provider of comprehensive medical claims solutions for insurance carriers, Fortune 1000 employers, government organizations and third party administrators.
