Estate Claims

Our Estate Claim Program provides you an outlet to send accounts on which you’ve received notice of a deceased patient.  We monitor the probate system for as long as 2 years for notice of an estate being filed.  Once an estate is filed we then file a claim to protect your interests and work with the executor to obtain the best settlement possible.

 

  • Recent changes in Indiana law have shortened the amount of time creditors have to assert their rights against a deceased debtor.

  • Currently claims against an estate must be filed within 3 months after an estate has been opened or 9 months after the decedent died, whichever is earlier.

  • Our office will pursue all possible avenues of payment either before these accounts are written off or the time limit has passed to pursue the estate.
