Cost Recovery & Expense Reduction

Neczus, Inc.
Neczus will help your company recover overpayments of Workman’s Compensation Premiums and reduce costs going forward. The company has a proprietary nine-point process to correct claims, charges and reduce your experience modification. This is all done on a contingency fee basis and there is no upfront charge to do this work. They recover money and then take a percentage of what is received.

Neczus has a highly trained group of auditing professionals that identify mistakes made by the clerical personnel at your insurer. These mistakes can be simple or complex, however, they are mistakes and they were made in the insurer’s favor. The Neczus team identifies, quantifies and corrects these errors. It is no different from finding an extra drink charged to your restaurant bill and asking for it to be removed.

All Neczus needs to get started are a couple of authorization letters and a signed contract. They are only paid when they recover money from the program and at that point take a share of the recovered funds. The process could take only a couple of weeks to several months. The only downside to these recoveries is for the insurance company, which will need to return money to you and reduce future premiums.

The company has a suite of services designed to save you money in Telcom, Utility, Hiring Credits and many more. The Workman’s Compensation Premium Recovery Program is their flagship product. For guaranteed savings with minimum efforts and no upfront costs, please contact Lee Justo, at lee.justo@neczus.com or call him at (914) 373-9124. Be sure to mention Greater New York Health Care Facilities Association for the additional member discount.

Utility Expense Reduction
Energy Savings 101. Your electricity and natural gas bills consist of delivery charges which are regulated by the New York State Public Service Commission (NYPSC), and the commodity cost, which can be purchased directly from the utility company or through a third party, commonly called an ESCO (Energy Service Company). No change in quality of service will occur when using an ESCO for supply. Unless there are special circumstances, little can be done to reduce the delivery charges, though a 4.25% tax break on this portion of your bill will apply within the New York Metropolitan area. The larger opportunity for savings involves the cost of the commodity. An ESCO purchases electricity and natural gas directly from suppliers, marks the commodity up with a profit and resells it to end-users. Typically, the ESCO is willing to work with a reduced profit margin, resulting in savings to the end-user. Since the market drives the pricing of the commodity, today’s quotation from an ESCO could be higher or lower than yesterday’s or tomorrow’s quotations. In addition, agreements with an ESCO can be based on daily commodity pricing or a fixed contractual rate for a specified period of time. Both scenarios offer risks and rewards.

Below are three companies which provide utility cost savings and services and have been involved with the health care industry. All can provide savings on electricity and natural gas, and provide energy audits, green energy products and energy management services. Be sure to mention Greater New York Health Care Facilities Association for the additional member discount.
