Quarum, MD

Dr. Merrit Quarum is the CEO of WellRithms, a high-dollar claim review and cost mitigation partner located in the Portland, OR area.   WellRithms specializes in claims reimbursements that are extremely complex and costly for which there is no prevailing Medicare or cost data that would allow a traditional claim repricer to negotiate from and will offer indemnification for select claims.  Dr. Quarum graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University and did a neuropharmacology fellowship at Johns Hopkins University.  He practiced occupational medicine before he started Qmedtrix, his previous company which provided bill review services for workers’ compensation claims and was sold in 2016.  As a practicing physician, Merrit saw firsthand the disparity and disconnect between insurance carriers, payors, and healthcare provider systems so he sought to simplify the payor and reimbursement models to tip the scales back into the favor of the community plan members and patients, as well as the fellow physicians that insurance carriers profess to serve.
