AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ASSOCIATION & CLASS ACTION CAPITAL PARTNERSHIP PORTAL
The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) has partnered with Class Action Capital, a market leader in managing class action settlement claims, to assist AHCA/NCAL members with optimizing recoveries in class action settlements.
Many healthcare facilities do not have the time or resources available to properly file and manage settlement claims. Class Action Capital will work on your behalf, in coordination with AHCA/NCAL, to submit fully comprehensive claims, while minimizing the use of your time, internal resources and the risk of mistake if you were to take on the claims management process on your own. Through the partnership with AHCA/NCAL, Class Action Capital will identify healthcare and non-healthcare recovery opportunities, ensuring your organization does not miss out on often unknown recovery opportunities.
Below are the latest settlement opportunities available for American Health Care Association Members.
