Lien Resolution Success Story – Synergy’s Medicare Post Final Demand Service secures full refund of $36,400 for injured plaintiff

This case involved a Medicare beneficiary who was injured as a result of medical malpractice. When the plaintiff’s attorney settled the personal injury action, Medicare presented a Final Demand of approximately $36,400. The plaintiff’s attorney paid the Final Demand to avoid interest and then attempted to reduce this amount via a first level appeal (Redetermination) but was unsuccessful. 

Synergy Lien Resolution Services was engaged, and we prepared the second level appeal (Reconsideration) using our intimate knowledge of both the Medicare Secondary Payer Act, and our unrivaled experience with the Medicare appeals process. Maximus, Medicare’s Appeals contractor, agreed with Synergy, removed all claims and issued a refund to the beneficiary in the amount $36,400.

“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."
