TESTIMONIALS

“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.”

"I was smart enough to hire Synergy Lien Resolution Services. Kudos to Synergy for tracking down ALL the medical bills, hounded Medicaid to pay them all, got all providers to state zero balances and then negotiated Medicaid down to accept $30K [down from 200k] to wipe out all of the medical bills."
