This CLE webinar will provide personal injury counsel for both plaintiffs and defendants, as well as adjusters, with practical tips and considerations for resolving Medicare and Medicaid liens in order to maximize recovery and ensure healthcare compliance in personal injury claims.

Description

Personal injury attorneys spend significant time resolving Medicare and Medicaid liens in tandem with litigating or settling the underlying personal injury claims. Until liens are addressed, final settlement of personal injury claims should not occur.

When personal injury plaintiffs accept Medicare or Medicaid benefits to cover accident-related bills, they are obligated to pay back the government if a third party later accepts responsibility for causing the underlying injuries, as demonstrated by a settlement, judgment or other award. Medicare and Medicaid are usually entitled to reimbursement of their expenditures on accident related medical care.

Many lienholders are often willing to compromise and there are legally and practically established means to lower the final lien amount. Strategic resolution of Medicare and Medicaid liens will help attorneys maximize client recovery and ensure compliance during settlement of the personal injury claim.

Listen as our authoritative panel of personal injury litigators and consultants discusses effective Medicare and Medicaid lien resolution tactics and strategies to maximize settlement amounts and ensure compliance with state and federal laws and regulations.
