Measuring the Value of Medical Services in Personal Injury Suits
Dr. Miller, Mr. Russo, and Ms. Younts will provide guidance on the appropriate methodology to measure
the value of medical services in personal injury suits. They will discuss why the approach typically taken
by life care planners in personal injury suits is incorrect and does not account for the reimbursement
mechanisms in the healthcare marketplace. While most life care planners rely on billed charges to
establish the value of healthcare services, providers’ charges do not reflect what is actually paid for care.
In fact, billed charges are almost never paid, and providers willingly accept less (sometimes substantially
less) than the charges. The presenters will describe these issues and how the issues are addressed in
personal injury lawsuits.
