Lien Res Success Story – Synergy’s experienced negotiators reduce a self-funded ERISA lien by 96% for a savings of $211,327.07

This case involved a plaintiff was injured when he jumped from a balcony and landed head first on the concrete pavement below.  Due to liability issues plaintiff’s counsel was only able to obtain $75,000 from the property owner’s insurance carrier.  The plaintiff’s medical bills were paid from his employer’s self-funded ERISA plan who asserted a subrogation/reimbursement claim  in the amount of $220,000.  Despite very strong plan language, and reliance on U.S. Airways vs. McCutchen , Synergy’s experienced negotiators were able to reduce the repayment demand to $9,000.00.  This is a reduction of 96% and allowed the severely injured plaintiff to retain the vast majority of his settlement proceeds. 


"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."

"I was smart enough to hire Synergy Lien Resolution Services. Kudos to Synergy for tracking down ALL the medical bills, hounded Medicaid to pay them all, got all providers to state zero balances and then negotiated Medicaid down to accept $30K [down from 200k] to wipe out all of the medical bills."
