Licont Corp. Provides Business Update

Unified Insurance Carrier Platform to Address $40B Personal Injury Market

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- Licont Corporation (OTCQB: LNTP), an emerging managed medical solution tailored to the accident and liability arena offers a platform enabling more efficient and effective processing of personal injury claims for carriers, providers and patients, today announced business updates and provided key strategic initiatives.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, over 31 million injuries occur to people throughout the U.S. each year that necessitate a doctor's care, almost two million people sustain injuries that require some degree of hospitalization, and 162,000 people die from their injuries.

CEO Dr. Trevor Robertson said, "With over $20 billion in direct medical payments and between $4-8 billion a year in fraudulent or inflated claims, run away healthcare expenses have created a personal injury crisis that cannot be fixed by insurance carriers alone."

The most recent comprehensive study from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, found that personal injury or tort trials comprised nearly 60 percent of a total of 26,948 tort, contract and real property trials nationwide in 2005.

The report estimates that attorneys tried 16,397 tort cases in a national sample of American state courts. As only about 4% of personal injury lawsuits ever go to trial, the sheer number of annual personal injury claims occurring in America is truly staggering.

Licont Platform Overview
All previously proposed models failed as they were designed to benefit either the carrier or the provider at the expense of the other, and always at the expense of patients. Licont's managed medical solution meets the outcome needs of all stakeholders. Licont's integrated solution simplifies, streamlines and solves what is currently a personal injury crisis with runaway medical expenses that cannot be fixed by the insurance carriers alone.

Dr. Robertson added that "In a typical personal injury scenario, a patient visit to a provider which should cost $100 a visit is often billed at $200 to even $300. Furthermore, injuries usually requiring 6-12 doctor visits are routinely billed for as many as 24 to 30 visits. Carriers reasonably see these common scenarios as inflated claims, while providers rationalize the fee under the guise of complicated underlying cause when in reality it is nothing more than the risk of non-payment or making up for the last claim they were not paid on. As an intermediary, Licont mitigates provider risk. It offers providers (physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, hospitals, imaging facilities and ambulatory services) fair, equitable and sustainable reimbursement while managing fraudulent and inflated claims that cost carriers $4-8 billion a year. The byproduct is that we provide carriers with significant ongoing savings."

Licont estimates that it can provide carriers up to 40% savings by providing providers a better-managed, more transparent integrated platform through the reduction or risk-premium.

Key Benefits for Stakeholders in the Value Chain

  • Carriers, faced with rising costs due to high incidence of medical fraud and buildup, now have a unified solution that drives up to 40% of these added costs out of the system.
  • Providers, faced with high risk of reimbursement denial, delays and reductions from carriers, have a more stable and predictable path to reimbursement.
  • Patients, confronted with limited provider choices, can now expect improved outcomes as more highly skilled providers have a reason to opt back into the system.

"We have received extremely strong responses from providers and insurance representatives for the Licont Platform. In addition to mitigating reimbursement risk for these physicians, it reintroduces personal injury care as a viable incremental business," said Dr. Robertson.

Licont has completed development of its provider enrollment platform and over the past 14 months, has grown from inception to a provider network covering 48 states. Licont plans to expand provider enrollment and acceptance in additional to commencing insurance carrier negotiations in the second half of 2014.
