UtiliSave Finds Large Adjustment for Hospital Client (R)

(New York City, New York – January 2, 2015) ……….  UtiliSave, LLC – a premier forensic utility bill auditing company headquartered in New York City – has recently obtained a substantial credit for their client, a large hospital in Brooklyn, NY.  The service agreement between UtiliSave and the Hospital was established on August 25th, 2014 and on October 28th, 2014 – approximately 2 months later – UtiliSave secured the adjustment which was immediately credited back to the Hospital, amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The initial concern of a possible bill discrepancy was raised by the client.  The utility company addressed the issue with an explanation to support their billing which seemed reasonable to the Hospital who then paid the bill of over $1 million in full.

UtiliSave performed a deep analysis of the Hospital’s utility data along with a series of on-site inspections and came to a different conclusion in regards to the billing.  UtiliSave submitted a claim to the utility company on the Hospital’s behalf, providing an alternative, detailed statistical analysis and calculations based on lower usage numbers.  The utility company verified UtiliSave’s findings, accepted their calculations and meter reads, and agreed with their arguments.  The over-billing was subsequently rectified using lower usage.  The initial charges were adjusted – resulting in a large net savings for UtiliSave’s client.

“We are very pleased to have secured this substantial adjustment for our client in such a short time-frame as an issue submitted to a utility company has a typical wait time of 90 days,” said Anatoliy Khotsyn, UtiliSave’s Vice President of Auditing.  He continued, “Due to the complexity of this issue, our team did their due diligence in conducting multiple inspections and compiled sufficient evidence to support our claim, which we believe, expedited the decision.  It is quite an accomplishment, and we are happy we could do so for our new client.”

Utility Bill Re-Audit Finds Significant Savings for Brooklyn Based Hospital

UtiliSave, a New York City based forensic auditing company, is pleased to announce the recovery of over $250,000 for a Brooklyn based hospital, as a result of forensic utility bill analysis.

Hospitals often have large and complex infrastructure supporting their myriad activities. The business of running and supporting a hospital may not be the stuff of primetime television, but it’s critical to the life-saving work that goes on in every ward, and as with any technology driven industry, electricity and water are the lifeblood of most systems. 

Recently, UtiliSave saved a single hospital over $250,000 by performing a ‘trailing audit’ – an audit performed on the heels of another firm’s utility audit. As a leading utility auditing company, UtiliSave has become an expert in re-reviewing already-analyzed billing information and uncovering previously unidentified errors, irregularities, and opportunities for savings.

“I have to give a lot of credit to the Hospital staff,” said Charlie Cavallo, Senior Account Executive at UtiliSave, “even though they had already been through an audit by another firm, they were open-minded to finding the savings that we knew would still exist.” Within weeks of performing the trailing audit, UtiliSave identified and secured over $250,000 in savings on water utilities alone for the Hospital. Subsequently UtiliSave has been able to recapture tens-of thousands of dollars in additional savings on electric utilities.

“What differentiates UtiliSave” says Cavallo “is that we’re specialists in this arena, with a deep pool of knowledge, experience and technical expertise. Many of the entities performing utility audits are very small shops, or former utility employees with some specific knowledge, but limited. We, on the other hand, are a forensic auditing company. We’ve been in this business for over 20 years. We have an expert staff and our own proprietary processes and software to perform intricate data analysis which is unparalleled in our industry.”

When asked about the next steps for their engagement with the hospital, UtiliSave’s CEO and Founder Michael Steifman stated with unflinching conviction, that Utilisave “will continue to save them money in the future. Any company with the amount of utilization, and the complexity of a hospital or large industry can only benefit from engaging the services of someone like us. The ability to find savings year after year for our clients sets UtiliSave apart.”
