Consumer or individual bankruptcy filings have, unfortunately, been on the rise in recent years. This makes it all the more important for a healthcare organization’s billing and collection systems to be vigilant in promptly capturing patient bankruptcy notices and taking immediate steps to cease all further billing and collection activity.

Attorney Michael Tamburini explores this issue in the July/August 2011 edition of KC MD News.
Tamburini’s practice is focused in the areas of creditors’ rights, corporate bankruptcy, and commercial litigation. He has advised and represented a diverse mix of creditors in complex matters in both federal and state courts across the United States. Mr. Tamburini is known for his extensive experience in a broad spectrum of sophisticated bankruptcy matters, having represented corporate clients in bankruptcy court in such matters as the confirmation of reorganization plans, relief from the automatic stay, the use of cash collateral, asset purchases, fraudulent transfer proceedings, and other bankruptcy litigation matters.
