Lien Res Success Story – Synergy obtains Medicare refund of $31,185.63 for estate of deceased beneficiary

This case involved a Medicare beneficiary pedestrian who was struck and
severely injured by the tortfeasor’s automobile.  The attorney for the
estate was able to obtain a policy limits settlement from the tortfeasor’s
Bodily Injury carrier in the amount of $100,000.00.  Medicare had issued
conditional payments in amount of $245,363.12 prior to the beneficiary’s death
and asserted a Final Demand for the entire settlement, minus attorney fees and
costs.  The estate paid the Final Demand and then engaged Synergy to
attempt to obtain a waiver or compromise.  Synergy’s knowledge of both the
MSPRC and CMS processes as well as experience in obtaining reductions from both
resulted in a timely and favorable result.  The estate reduced its
Medicare liability by 50% entitling it to a refund of $31,185.63.

TESTIMONIALS

"I have used Synergy to resolve tough Medicare lien and set aside issues. There is no other practice that comes close to the quality of their work. I highly recommend them and they are a must for the substantial, tough cases."

I wanted to pass my highest recommendation to Synergy who we routinely get involved in cases when Medicare issues come up, especially when dealing with Medicare Set Asides. Synergy went beyond the call of duty in a recent case that was settled and dealt one-on-one with our clients and their family. They spent time on the phone with them to be sure they got all their questions answered and did a fantastic job dealing with Medicare.
