Synergy reduces AARP Medicare Advantage repayment by 95% for a savings of $49,000.00

This case involved an elderly plaintiff who had Medicare Part C coverage through his AARP Medicare Advantage plan.  The plaintiff was injured when he was walking through a parking lot and was forced to jump out of the way of a speeding motor vehicle.  The member injured his hip and legs in the leap and subsequent fall.  The AARP Medicare Advantage plan asserted a reimbursement claim in the amount of $51,669.34.  The entire underlying personal injury action settled for $50,000.00 from which the injured plaintiff’s attorney took $16,666.66 as his fee, resulting in a net recovery of approximately $33,333.00 for the plaintiff.  Rather than pay the balance of these funds over to AARP, counsel for the injured plaintiff engaged Synergy Lien Resolution to assist in resolving AARP’s  claim. Synergy applied itsproven tactics and within forty five (45) days had reduced the claim to $2,690.40.  This is a reduction of almost 95% which created a savings of $48,978.94 allowing the injured plaintiff to retain over 80% of his net recovery.

“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."
