Synergy Lien Resolution Services Success Story – 63% Medicaid Lien Reduction by Using WOS v. EMA Decision

This case involved a shooting of a Medicaid enrollee while at a nightclub.  The Medicaid enrollee suffered major injuries when she was shot in the neck. The plaintiff incurred medical damages in excess of $200,000.00 and was able to secure settlement in the amount of
$940,000.00.  Medicaid asserted a lien of $162,861.79 and demanded full repayment under Florida Statute 409.910.  Other liens were asserted as well.  Plaintiff’s counsel engaged Synergy Lien Resolution Services to resolve all of the liens.  Synergy was able to obtain complete waivers from the other lien holders and focused attention on resolving the Medicaid lien.  The same day as the U.S. Supreme Court issued WOS v. EMA 568 U.S. ___ (March 20, 2013), Synergy contacted the recovery vendor for Florida Medicaid HMO, and used the holding to further reduce their demand (Synergy had already secured a $42,861.79 reduction).  The effective and timely manner in which Synergy used the fresh U.S. Supreme Court decision allowed the plaintiff to take immediate advantage of the change in the law.  Synergy spent the next month slowly driving the repayment figure down to its final 63% for a savings of $102,861.79.”

TESTIMONIALS

Synergy’s team makes it easy to deal with all of the issues we hate at the end of the case. Dealing with Medicare, ERISA liens, keeping eligibility intact for Medicaid and complicated planning for the client’s recovery. The experts we work with regularly at Synergy do a great job of making sure I am protected as are my clients.

“Synergy Lien Resolution Services just finished getting an ERISA lien dramatically reduced for me. I tried for months, asked for the plan etc., tried to understand it, to little avail. Synergy got it slashed way beyond what the carrier told me that they would ever agree to. It cost my client peanuts, benefited her huge. I won’t ever screw around with trying to get those reduced; from now on they all go to Synergy.”
