KANSAS HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION & CLASS ACTION CAPITAL PARTNERSHIP PORTAL
Kansas Health Service Corporation, a subsidiary of the Kansas Hospital Association (KHA), has partnered with Class Action Capital, a market leader in class action settlement claim management. Class Action Capital is already successfully working with a very large number of hospitals, healthcare facilities, and state hospital associations across the country helping to recover meaningful refunds on their behalf from a number of recent class action settlements.
Many healthcare companies do not have the time, resources or relevant data available in order to file a settlement claim and Class Action Capital will work with you in order to submit a fully comprehensive claim recovery, while minimizing the use of your time, internal resources and the risk of mistake if you were to take on claims management on your own.
