Lien Res Success Story – Synergy wipes out Medicare Condtional Payment Obligation

This case involves a Medicare beneficiary who was injured on a June 27, 2011 in a motor vehicle accident which took place in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The beneficiary retained counsel and eventually settled her claim against the negligent tortfeasor for $6,00.00.  Despite the relatively small size of the settlement her attorney involved Synergy’s Lien Resolution Service to protect the settlement proceeds from the lien being asserted by Medicare , via MSPRC.  Medicare asserted a lien for conditional payments advanced in the amount of $1,595.00.  These charges were unrelated to the subject accident and were not claimed by the beneficiary in the personal injury case.  Synergy was able to successfully dispute these charges and Medicare agreed to reduce the balance owed to zero and to close their file.    The result was a increase of 44% to the beneficiary’s net recovery . This case clearly demonstrates how on even the small dollar files Synergy can take steps that can make a significant impact on
the plaintiff’s take home.

“Synergy is our guiding light for deferring our contingent legal fees and planning for retirement. The lawyers at Panter Panter & Sampedro, myself included, have been working with them for over ten years using different methods to defer comp and plan for retirement.”

"I don't think I've directly said "thank you" for helping us with Bridgett’s case. We sent the reduced payment to Medicaid and called Bridgett's mom to tell her approximately how much money was going to be left for Bridgett and she broke down over the telephone. Given only $25k of insurance and a $850k medical bill from the hospital she didn't think Bridgett would ever see a penny."
