Medicare Refunds over 50% of their Final Demand after Synergy proposed FCCA Compromise request!

This is a case in which the Medicare Beneficiary was injured in a motor vehicle accident and suffered major spinal cord injuries. The injured party hired excellent counsel but due to policy limits was only able to obtain $45,000 in settlement funds.

After reporting the settlement to Medicare, the plaintiff was confronted with a Medicare Final Demand in the amount of $30, 262.22. This was the entire balance of the settlement funds after attorney fees and costs, with the injured Medicare beneficiary receiving nothing.

At this point, plaintiff’s counsel paid the Final Demand, to avoid the 10.2% interest that Medicare charges on Final Demands that remain unpaid after sixty (60) days, and engaged Synergy Lien Resolution Services to utilize our Medicare Post Final Demand Services. Synergy requested that Medicare compromise their claim under the Federal Claims Collection Act and accept a reduced repayment. Medicare agreed to reduce its demand by over 50% and has issued a refund in the amount of $15,262.22 to the beneficiary.

"In my twenty-two year career as a trial lawyer I've handled my share of catastrophic cases and structures, but imagine the complexity of an engaged, unwed mother catastrophically injured during delivery, giving birth to a healthy child, but left in a vegetative state? The issues of guardianship and entitlements of the newborn, the rights of the biological father-fiancé, an out-of-state teenage child of the mother, lifetime maintenance of the mother, as well as the rights of family of the mother, who became her primary care-takers? Synergy systematically managed the seven figure tender of one defendant, the establishment of a Qualified Settlement Fund, a Special Needs Trust, and multiple structures, all the while concurrently maintaining the various entitlements to ancillary services, as well as the remaining litigation. Everything was handled professionally, timely and literally without a hitch. Truly an amazing feat."
