Lien Res Success Story – Synergy’s Post Final Demand Medicare Service reduces repayment by 93% for savings of $27,811.84

This is a case wherein the Medicare beneficiary was injured when he slipped and fell at an event in Palm Beach.  The elderly plaintiff sustained modest injuries with medical damages less than $10,000.00.  The plaintiff hired counsel who made a successful claim against the responsible parties.  However, when plaintiff’s counsel attempted to resolve Medicare’s claim for repayment of conditional payments he was confronted with a repayment demand of $29,797.85.    The elderly plaintiff had pre-existing injuries and Medicare was including treatment for these unrelated items in their repayment demand.  The plaintiff’s attorney attempted to work this out with MSPRC (Medicare’s recovery contractor) but was unsuccessful, despite verbal confirmation from MSPRC that their demand would be corrected and reduced.  Plaintiff’s counsel then attempted to have this matter resolved by appealing the Final Demand, but he was again unsuccessful.  At this point Synergy Lien Resolution Services was brought in to assist.   Synergy filed a second level appeal with Maximus Federal Services, and in less than ninety (90) days the demand amount was reduced.  The final result was a reduction of the repayment demand by 93% and a savings of $27,811.84 for the injured plaintiff.


"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 wanted to pass my highest recommendation to Synergy who we routinely get involved in cases when Medicare issues come up, especially when dealing with Medicare Set Asides. Synergy went beyond the call of duty in a recent case that was settled and dealt one-on-one with our clients and their family. They spent time on the phone with them to be sure they got all their questions answered and did a fantastic job dealing with Medicare.
