Need Assistance Drafting Agreements?

If you are an attorney that works in personal injury law, you know that if your client is uninsured or their insurance does not cover the cost of their medical bills, the healthcare company will desire recovery of the expenses via a settlement for that healthcare lien. However, depending on several circumstances, the recovery process can greatly vary. As experts in the healthcare lien legal field, please consult one of our knowledgeable professionals if you need assistance with a healthcare lien resolution. If you are not in need of our services at this time, please read on about what a letter of protection is and why they can be critical to a case.

Letter of Protection

In many cases, when the victim of negligence does not have insurance or quality health insurance, they can simply not pay for or be covered for their medical expenses. However, if they provide their doctor with a letter of protection, this will allow them to get the treatment they need. In other words, a letter of protection allows the client to receive the personalized care they need to recover from their injuries and creates a deferred payment to the doctor once the victim of negligence is able to settle their case and be compensated. When a doctor agrees to a letter of protection with an injured party, the law firm representing the client has agreed to cover the medical expenses of the injured party until the personal injury case is finalized. Because of this written agreement, the healthcare company will stop collection efforts until the case is finalized as well.

Support for Your Documents

Like all legal documents that are binding agreements, the key to a letter of protection is in the way the document is worded. It’s advisable if you draft this document that you do so with extreme caution. At Synergy Settlement Solutions, we provide our clients with assistance drafting any settlements or legally binding agreements for their cases. We will also provide you with the legal advice and support you need to ensure that your client is happy when the case is finalized.

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.
