CAC & MHA PARTNERSHIP PORTAL
MHA Service Corporation, a subsidiary of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA), 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 substantial refunds on their behalf from a number of recent class action settlements. The MHA Service Corporation will now offer these value-added services to its members.
Many hospitals do not have the time, resources or relevant data available to file a settlement claim, and Class Action Capital will work with them to submit a fully comprehensive claim recovery, while minimizing the use of their employees’ time, internal resources and the risk of errors when managing claims themselves.
