Cherokee Announces Open Access to Gain Servicing Portal

By | Press Releases

A single collaborative ecosystem for personal injury lawyers and medical providers to save time and money by better managing and tracking personal injury liens.

Atlanta, July 27, 2021 – Earlier this month, Cherokee Legal Holdings (“Cherokee”), owner of Gain Servicing and Cherokee Funding, formally announced the open access of their SaaS-based, AI-enhanced third-party servicing platform, the Gain Servicing web portal. Official open access followed an initial successful rollout to previously waitlisted attorney and provider offices. In its first week since the start of open access, dozens of additional attorney and medical provider offices have been onboarded to the portal.

“The traditional funding model for personal injury patients is broken, which is why I am thrilled to announce open access to the Gain Service portal – a platform that takes AI-derived case values into consideration in order to analyze total bills and their collectability. At settlement, this results in actual dollars recovered for providers based on settlement amounts and not return minimums for funding companies. It is a gamechanger for everyone involved – attorneys, medical providers, funding companies, and, most importantly, patients, or plaintiffs in these instances,” said Cherokee Founder and CEO, Reid Zeising.

The Gain Servicing portal enables 24/7 access to patient information, allows rapid intake of personal injury patient data, tracks letters of protection (LOPs) and medical liens, and houses important case documents – centralizing everything in one easy-to-use collaborative environment. Out-of-the-box AI-enhanced business intelligence reporting, including detailed referral source and customary charge analysis, drives more patient volume while improving both the patient experience as well as the financial results for healthcare providers.

Additional functionality and benefits of the portal include:
• Input of new claims and referrals
• Access to patient/client documents, including treatment status, bills, notes and records
• Critical insights that can be utilized to allocate resources needed for care
• Notification when treatment is complete, with the ability to request additional documentation
• Comprehensive search, view and management functionality for claims and doctor notes
• Management of user accounts and contact information
• Instant payoff requests

Attorneys can also use the portal to source quality provider care for clients, update case statuses, request plaintiff funding, and retrieve instant payoff amounts.

“The sophistication and ease of use of the Gain Servicing portal will change the way personal injury claims are managed across both the legal and healthcare industries,” said Cherokee Vice President of Platform Innovation & Architecture, Jonathan Razza. “We have received glowing feedback from attorneys and providers leading up to open access and we look forward to further enhancing our cloud-based platform based on our ambitious technology roadmap and through on-going collaboration with attorneys and providers across the U.S.”

Attorneys and medical providers are invited to schedule a demo of the portal as well as request login information by emailing support@gainservicing.com.

Inc. Magazine Unveils 2020 Inc. 5000, Cherokee Legal Holdings Named One of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

By | Blog, Press Releases

Cherokee Legal Holdings Ranked No. 3009 on the 2020 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 131%

Atlanta – August 17, 2020 – Inc. Magazine has ranked Cherokee Legal Holdings (“Cherokee”), a full-service direct legal and medical services company, providing financial assistance for plaintiffs, payment for medical care and the servicing of third-party, torte action receivables for medical providers, number 3009 on the 2020 Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

This is Cherokee’s first year applying for and making the Inc. 5000 list.

“Given the outbreak of COVID-19, this year has proven especially challenging for businesses around the country and around the world,” said Cherokee CEO Reid Zeising. “Commemorating where we are with a spot on the Inc. 5000 is monumental, and it gives us hope and motivation to continue fighting for what our company was built on – equality and justice for all. With the pandemic, our revenue cycle management and services to healthcare providers along with financial assistance to plaintiffs have proven invaluable as providers search for ways to optimize operating efficiencies and plaintiff needs expand. As a result, we have seen an acceleration in what were already tremendous growth rates.”

Inc. is reporting that not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 12. Cherokee’s profile can be viewed at www.inc.com/profile/cherokee-legal-holdings.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually October 23-27, 2020.

“Growing well over 100 percent would have never been possible with the tremendous efforts of the Cherokee team,” said Zeising. “This recognition is for them.”

Cherokee Legal Holdings Announces the Launch of Gain Servicing, Relief for Healthcare Practices Amidst COVID-19

By | Blog, Press Releases

Atlanta, Georgia – Today, Cherokee Legal Holdings (“Cherokee”), a full-service direct legal and medical services company, providing financial assistance for plaintiffs, payment for medical care and the servicing of third-party, torte action receivables for medical providers, announced the launch of gain servicing, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cherokee.

Cherokee, a founding member of Americans for Patient Access (APA) advocating for patient care regardless of health insurance coverage, was founded in 2010 and is one of the fastest growing funding companies in the U.S. In 2019, Cherokee piloted an artificial intelligence initiative to increase patient data analysis and accelerate the financial returns produced for healthcare practices. Gain servicing now offers these services to healthcare providers directly.

Gain servicing provides the management of certain third-party liability claims including Letters of Protection (LOPs) and the management of third-party liens on behalf of healthcare practices, which enables doctors to focus less on their accounts receivables and more on treating patients, regardless of those patients’ medical coverage.

“Doctors are passionate about patients having access to proper treatment, whether they have health insurance or not. As a result, many practices treat uninsured and underinsured personal injury patients on an LOP. This is a ‘win’ for these patients who get needed medical treatment they may not otherwise receive. Meanwhile, treating patients on LOPs is financially hard on doctors. Many have to wait months and even years in the hopes they will get paid when the patient’s case settles. For these very situations, we have created gain servicing to manage these cases from inception to repayment,” said Cherokee CEO, Reid Zeising. “Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, this service has proven especially critical to many practices that have seen elective procedures slow and may already be stretched thin financially.”

Gain servicing offers a package of technology, people and processes that have proven to deliver higher reimbursements at a lower cost without impacting patient referrals. Gain servicing’s proprietary platform uses machine learning to analyze case information, track LOPs and predict settlement values, thus granting access to needed medical treatment for plaintiffs in tens of thousands of underlying lawsuits. The comparative data simultaneously fuels the artificial intelligence (AI) engine that the gain servicing team then uses to optimize the repayment of rates for LOP cases.
