MEDICAL PRACTICE PURCHASING GROUP & CLASS ACTION CAPITAL PARTNERSHIP PORTAL
Medical Practice Purchasing Group (MPPG) has partnered with Class Action Capital, a market leader in managing class action settlement claims, to assist MPPG members with optimizing recoveries in class action settlements.
Many healthcare systems do not have the time or resources available to properly file and manage a settlement claim, and as an MPPG vendor, Class Action Capital will work on your behalf in coordination with MPPG, in order 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 claims management on your own. Through our partnership with MPPG, Class Action Capital will identify both healthcare, as well as non-healthcare, recovery opportunities, ensuring your organization does not miss out on often unknown recovery opportunities.
