Lien Res Success Story – Synergy’s experienced auditors reduce Medicare demand by 99.8% for a savings of $93,171.45

This case involved a Medicare beneficiary who was injured in a motor vehicle accident while riding as a passenger.  The beneficiary suffered moderate injuries including broken ribs.  The beneficiary engaged an attorney to litigate his claim against the tortfeasor and was able to settle the personal injury matter for $45,000.00.  During the course of the claim, Medicare asserted a repayment demand for $93,375.73.  Despite the plaintiff attorney’s best efforts Medicare maintained its position on repayment and the relatedness of the Conditional Payments to the accident.  Plaintiff’s counsel contacted Synergy for assistance, and within forty five (45) days the repayment demand from Medicare was reduced to $193.72—a savings of 99.8%.

"Coincidentally, on the day of a recent Synergy Seminar on Medicare & ERISA lien resolution I received a letter on an ERISA lien. This letter followed much back and forth between myself and the recovery vendor for BCBS. Despite my efforts they were adamant there would be no (zero)(zilch)(nada) reduction and provided case law to support their position. I tried Synergy’s Lien Resolution Services since I had just heard their Director of Lien Resolution speak. Synergy got them to reduce their claim by a third in less than ten (10) days. The result was quick and the fee very reasonable. If you have a tough ERISA lien and your typical efforts don’t work, give Synergy a try."
