Lien Resolution Success – Synergy reduces self-funded ERISA subrogation claim by 70%, an additional 57% more than the trial attorney could

This is a case wherein a plaintiff, while recovering from hip replacement surgery, was dropped during a bed transfer at the rehabilitation facility.  The plaintiff engaged counsel and was able to secure a settlement in the amount of $140,000.00.  The plaintiffs’ medical care had been provided by a self-funded ERISA Plan who wanted full repayment in the amount of $66,306.89.  After negotiating with the ERISA Plan’s recovery vendor, Optum, for nearly a year and half plaintiff’s counsel was able to secure a reduction in their demand to $35,000.00.  Believing this repayment amount was still inequitable, and knowing that Synergy would only charge a fee on any additional reduction beyond the $35,000.00, he engaged Synergy  Lien Resolution Services to assist.  Within three months Synergy used 29 U.S.C. 1024(b)(4),  as well as other time tested reduction tactics, to force a further reduction from Optum.  The result was a repayment demand 57% lower than the experienced trial attorney could achieve in less than 20% of the time.  The final repayment amount was $20,000.00.

TESTIMONIALS

"I have been very impressed by the results achieved by Synergy Lien Resolution Services. They saved my client over $108,000 in reducing a difficult ERISA lien. Their expertise was invaluable and resulted in a very happy client. Best money I ever spent. I wholeheartedly recommend them. You are doing your client a disservice if you don’t hire them to help you with your liens."

“Synergy Lien Resolution Services just finished getting an ERISA lien dramatically reduced for me. I tried for months, asked for the plan etc., tried to understand it, to little avail. Synergy got it slashed way beyond what the carrier told me that they would ever agree to. It cost my client peanuts, benefited her huge. I won’t ever screw around with trying to get those reduced; from now on they all go to Synergy.”
