Lien Resolution Success Story – Synergy works directly with CMS Seattle Regional Office to shortcut the compromise process and reduce Final Demand by over $33,000

This is a case wherein the Medicare beneficiary was catastrophically injured in a Seattle, Washington motor vehicle accident. The beneficiary hired counsel and was able to obtain $1,000,000 in settlement funds. The settlement funds came via two separate settlements and when the first settlement was reported by the carrier to CMS problems began.  Plaintiff’s counsel attempted to resolve the confusion even going so far as to request a compromise from CMS. The request was denied and the incorrect Final Demand remained. 

At this point counsel engaged Synergy to assist. With our knowledge of the process, the Medicare Secondary Payer Act and the Medicare Secondary Payer Manual, Synergy was able to contact the Regional Director in Seattle Washington, quickly correct the errors, and have a new and accurate Final Demand issued for a savings of over $33,000.

"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."
