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 learned of Synergy through the state trial lawyers association when I was looking for help in dealing with Medicare. As you know, dealing with Medicare can be difficult and time consuming. We all get the articles and updates regarding Medicare, but Synergy does an incredible job of clarifying so many questions. I cannot thank you and the Synergy staff enough for the assistance, insight, and professionalism. You can be sure that I will only be recommending Synergy to my clients for Medicare issues in the years to come."

"We have been using the lien resolution services Synergy offers for over a year, and it has been a load off of our back. As a trial attorney, I need my staff to spend time on litigation, not waste their time on hold with Medicare. The time and effort that we used to spend resolving issues with Medicare is now being used in much more productive ways. I haven’t called Medicare in over a year, and I hope I don’t have to call them again."
