The buck does not stop at winning a settlement. Medicare, Medicaid, and health insurance liens are three of the biggest obstacles to resolving settlements. If your client is a Medicaid or Medicare beneficiary, multiple entities can potentially place a lien on your client’s settlement. It is critical that you are proactive and aggressive when resolving these liens. Outsourcing lien resolution is highly recommended for several reasons.
Ever Resolved a Healthcare Lien for a Client?
Whether you have personally resolved a client’s lien or know an attorney who has, you know the process is complex and all-consuming. Before your client’s case can be finalized, you are legally required to address their healthcare liens. The more healthcare liens a client has, the more laborious the recovery process. You can spin your wheels trying to figure out all the bills and documentation or you can partner with a professional lien expert to expedite the process so you can close your client’s case for good.
It Puts More Money in Your Client’s Pocket
Outsourcing lien resolution is a more efficient and cost-effective way to identify and resolve medical liens. These professionals know the ends and outs of the lien resolution process and know what it takes to comply with The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements to see to it that Medicare’s best interest is a priority. Professional lien experts can ensure that unrelated charges are removed as well as negotiate reductions, putting more money in your client’s pocket.
You Get to Refocus Your Efforts Where They Matter
Settling healthcare liens has become an arduous process and comes with a learning curve. As a result, attorneys who undertake the resolution process may find themselves spending as much time resolving their client’s lien as they did litigating the case itself. Outsourcing to a professional allows you to redirect your focus and resources to your core competencies—advocating for your clients and bringing in new cases to increase your firm’s revenue.
