Lien Res Success Story – Synergy reduces Medicare Conditional Payment demand by 95% increasing the plaintiff’s “take home” by 10 fold

This case involves a dual eligible Medicare/Medicaid beneficiary who was
injured in a multiple car collision on August 1, 2012.  The elderly beneficiary suffered major injuries including a fractured femur.  Despite these serious injuries, the plaintiff was only able recover $20,000.00 from all sources.  The plaintiff’s attorney waived costs and reduced his fee so that the beneficiary would realize some portion of the nominal settlement for her injuries.  Medicare, via MSPRC, asserted a lien for the conditional payments it had advanced in the amount of $12,587.06.  Synergy was engaged to reduce the amount that the plaintiff must repay to Medicare and immediately began an aggressive lien resolution protocol.  The result of Synergy’s efforts was a Final Demand amount being issued by Medicare, via MSPRC, in the amount of $617.77.  This is a 95% savings and an increase of nearly ten times to the plaintiff’s ‘take home’.


"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."

"In my business as a plaintiff’s products liability lawyer, everything begins and ends with our clients. In our firm we never handle a significant case without the assistance of Synergy. Why? Very simple: we trust Synergy with our clients. Yes, Synergy only works with plaintiffs. And yes, they are highly technically proficient and know this business cold. But what makes them different from others is that they listen to our clients, make our clients comfortable with complex issues, and always put the interests of the client first. In my opinion, because of their unique ability to handle people with sincerity and compassion in their time of crisis, they stand head and shoulders above his competition."
