Every year the United States Treasury receives billions of dollars of unclaimed property. These funds go uncollected because of minor errors (misspelled names or out-of-date addresses).
Specifically for the DME Industry, small balance payments from insurance companies can add up over time. Be sure to check your state’s treasury website to see if your company has unclaimed property claims.
