Synergy expands ethical lien resolution outsourcing to Utah by obtaining Ethics Advisory Opinion 14-01

In the ongoing effort to help the plaintiff’s bar address the complex issues involved in healthcare lien resolution, Synergy has obtained an ethics opinion that will enable Utah’s personal injury attorneys to take advantage of experts in this field.  Synergy’s work in obtaining Utah Ethics Advisory Opinion 14-01 is an example of how we are actively attempting to change the landscape of healthcare subrogation at a national level.  It has always been Synergy’s goal to allow the injured plaintiff to keep as much of their settlement funds as possible.  We achieve this by allowing the trial attorney to focus on what they do best.  Synergy provides a dependable outsourcing solution for complex and time consuming lien resolution activities where we have a proven record of significant reductions.  While some of our competitors advertise as a “neutral” lien resolution company, Synergy is a plaintiff’s only resource. This new ethics opinion will allow Utah’s personal injury attorneys to properly outsource lien resolution to a third party and charge that third party’s fee as a litigation cost.

"I recently engaged Synergy to assist with a complicated PTD settlement involving a substantial Medicare Set Aside. The claimant’s wife has been providing full time attendant care which is not Medicare covered. The Synergy nurse was able to do a full analysis of non-Medicare covered expenses which far exceeded the value of the MSA analysis performed by the carrier’s contracted MSA provider. The non- Medicare figures became the main focus of the settlement negotiations and more than doubled the value of the case. Although I could estimate the attendant care figures, the nurse added in other items that I would not have routinely considered. I also asked Synergy to evaluate the EC’s MSA as well as their prescription review. Synergy offered insight about the prescription donut hole which I did not have a clear understanding about. Again, their insight and information added a great deal of value to the overall settlement. Not only did I learn from Synergy but was able to educate my clients in the process. These are very complex and complicated areas; I will use Synergy again and again!"

"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."
