This is a tragic case involving a Medicare beneficiary who was near fatally wounded in a horrific home invasion. The beneficiary was shot multiple times during a home invasion that claimed the life of her daughter. Though surviving the attack, the plaintiff incurred massive medical bills resulting in Medicare issuing a Final Demand for repayment in the amount of $159,061.85. It was at this point that plaintiff’s trial counsel turned to Synergy.
Despite a substantial seven figure settlement obtained by plaintiff’s counsel, Synergy believed it was inequitable for this beneficiary to be required to repay any amount to Medicare. Synergy’s Medicare Waiver & Compromise Service utilizes our extensive experience and expertise with the Medicare Secondary Payer Act’s provisions to reduce or eliminate the amount a plaintiff owes to Medicare.
In this tragic case, Synergy was able to obtain a complete waiver of Medicare’s conditional payment amount and a refund of the entire $159,061.85 plaintiff’s counsel had already paid based upon the Final Demand issued by CMS. Even more amazing is the fact that Synergy was able to achieve this result in less then thirty (30) days.
