THERE IS A STAGGERING $51 BILLION OF GENERATED DELIQUENT MEDICAL DEBT EACH YEAR.
The Center for Consumer Recovery (CCR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works with hospitals to transform uncollectable debt into an asset for your community. CCR’s Program works to address the underlying root cause of people’s inability to pay their medical bills, turning a dormant asset into a working asset in your community. CCR provides the unique opportunity for Hospitals to donate (or transfer) their fully charged-off patient accounts deemed uncollectable to a not-for-profit organization.
In partnership with Merit Consumer Services and Noble Financial Solutions, CCR works directly with affected patients to address the core issues preventing payment, including job loss/loss of income, family circumstances, personal health conditions and more. As patients improve their financial status, they are offered the opportunity to make voluntary, modest and affordable payments on their accounts with CCR.
After operating expenses are covered, CCR then continues to re-invest a good portion of those recovered funds. 20% of recovered funds are used to support the delivery of ongoing social, financial and job placement services to these patients in need; and another 20% is placed into a Community Investment Fund to be used for scholarships, health maintenance, education, job training programs, and other community investments in coordination with the Hospital.
CCR deploys a highly compassionate “white glove” approach to working with your patients to offer over 6,000 social, financial and job placement services ranging from housing, transportation, utilities, pet care, childcare, senior citizen assistance, prescription drugs, debt negotiation/settlement, financial literacy training programs and more all at no cost to the patient or hospital! All costs are covered by the non-profit, CCR. You can rest assured that your patients are treated with dignity, respect, and compassion. Our CCR goal is to empower patients to strengthen their financial position and experience the pride that comes with the ability to meet their financial obligations.
