Healthcare Billing, Reimbursement & Compliance Experts
U.S. District Court (NJ) Judge Jerome Simandle's opinion stated, "Mr. Blount is qualified to testify as an expert on Medicare reimbursement and billing issues. He possesses specialized knowledge, based on his over thirty years extensive experience as a healthcare auditor addressing Medicare reimbursement concerns and through his published works."    (Landau v. Lucasti, Civil No. 06-1229)
State Court of Chatham County (GA) Judge Gregory Sapp's opinion stated, "the Court DENIES the Plaintiffs motion to exclude Mr. Blount's testimony regarding the reasonableness of her medical expenses. The Court finds this testimony might be helpful to the jury and the comparison of charges would be relevant to the jury's determination of reasonableness.  (Miller vs. HFW, Civil No. STCV1702110SA)
U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion stated, "Blount’s and Schmor’s testimony did not violate the collateral source rule. Their testimony addressed the reasonableness and necessity of what Showan had paid for her discectomy. Whether the expenses were “reasonable and necessary” is a critical inquiry under Georgia law. ...Accordingly, the district court did not abuse its discretion in admitting the testimony of Blount and Schmor."    (Showan v. Krispy Kreme, No. 17-15547)
U.S. District Court (CA) Judge Christina Snyder's opinion stated, "The Court finds that Blount is qualified to testify as an expert in this case. Blount has served as an expert in the medical billing field and has testified regarding medical billing issues in state and federal courts.... The Court also concludes that Blount’s a sound analytical method that will assist the jury in understanding the relatively complex issue of medical billing practices."    (Glenwood v. Augment, Civil No. 10-8910)
Muscogee County (GA) Superior Court Judge Maureen Gottrieds opinion stated, "“After hearing Mr. Blount's qualifications and testimony at the June 5, 2017 hearing on class certification, this Court finds that Mr. Blount is qualified to render an opinion as an expert in this case and therefore denies TMC's motion to exclude Mr. Blount's testimony.”   (Enterprise Leasing and Danielle Bowden, et al v. The Medical Center, Civil Action File No. SU12CV2676)
