Lien Res Success Story – Synergy wipes out Medicare Condtional Payment Obligation

This case involves a Medicare beneficiary who was injured on a June 27, 2011 in a motor vehicle accident which took place in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The beneficiary retained counsel and eventually settled her claim against the negligent tortfeasor for $6,00.00.  Despite the relatively small size of the settlement her attorney involved Synergy’s Lien Resolution Service to protect the settlement proceeds from the lien being asserted by Medicare , via MSPRC.  Medicare asserted a lien for conditional payments advanced in the amount of $1,595.00.  These charges were unrelated to the subject accident and were not claimed by the beneficiary in the personal injury case.  Synergy was able to successfully dispute these charges and Medicare agreed to reduce the balance owed to zero and to close their file.    The result was a increase of 44% to the beneficiary’s net recovery . This case clearly demonstrates how on even the small dollar files Synergy can take steps that can make a significant impact on
the plaintiff’s take home.


"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 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."
