"Coincidentally, on the day of a recent Synergy Seminar on Medicare & ERISA lien resolution I received a letter on an ERISA lien. This letter followed much back and forth between myself and the recovery vendor for BCBS. Despite my efforts they were adamant there would be no (zero)(zilch)(nada) reduction and provided case law to support their position. I tried Synergy’s Lien Resolution Services since I had just heard their Director of Lien Resolution speak. Synergy got them to reduce their claim by a third in less than ten (10) days. The result was quick and the fee very reasonable. If you have a tough ERISA lien and your typical efforts don’t work, give Synergy a try."

When we face difficult post resolution issues, we turn to Synergy. They provide us with the necessary expert advice about Medicare compliance, preservation of public benefits, lien resolution and settlement planning. We don’t need to go anywhere else, they are the experts when it comes to the case after the case. All of those sticky issues, they easily navigate and let us focus on other issues.
