"Synergy is an invaluable partner in the mediation process. They have extensive expertise in Medicare, Medicaid and Structured Settlements and the ability to explain the impact of these complex concepts to my clients in simple, clear and understandable language. This allows me to focus on obtaining the best possible result in the settlement process."

"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."
