APHA Expert Call-in

Helping Your Clients Pay for Your Services (or Anything Else)
in an Unexpected Way

Wednesday, June 3

Often you hear from a potential client who would love to hire you, but is limited in his/her ability to pay you. Or, they call to ask you to help them manage and reduce medical bills and are left with little or no means to pay a balance, or… you know… the list, and those who struggle to pay, goes on.
  They may not realize there could be an untapped resource they never even knew existed! No, it’s not about borrowing money, and it’s not money that ever needs to be paid back.

Lisa Rehburg is the principal of Rehburg Life Settlements. She works with people to uncover funds they might never have gained access to in any other way; funds that would have just disappeared, kept by a life insurance company that never had to pay out for its insured customer.

Lisa will walk us through how such a “settlement” works, and scenarios where clients can benefit. She’ll also tell us about the process to gain access to the funds, and will manage our expectations about possibilities.
