Synergy reduces AARP Medicare Advantage repayment by 95% for a savings of $49,000.00

This case involved an elderly plaintiff who had Medicare Part C coverage through his AARP Medicare Advantage plan.  The plaintiff was injured when he was walking through a parking lot and was forced to jump out of the way of a speeding motor vehicle.  The member injured his hip and legs in the leap and subsequent fall.  The AARP Medicare Advantage plan asserted a reimbursement claim in the amount of $51,669.34.  The entire underlying personal injury action settled for $50,000.00 from which the injured plaintiff’s attorney took $16,666.66 as his fee, resulting in a net recovery of approximately $33,333.00 for the plaintiff.  Rather than pay the balance of these funds over to AARP, counsel for the injured plaintiff engaged Synergy Lien Resolution to assist in resolving AARP’s  claim. Synergy applied itsproven tactics and within forty five (45) days had reduced the claim to $2,690.40.  This is a reduction of almost 95% which created a savings of $48,978.94 allowing the injured plaintiff to retain over 80% of his net recovery.

Synergy’s team makes it easy to deal with all of the issues we hate at the end of the case. Dealing with Medicare, ERISA liens, keeping eligibility intact for Medicaid and complicated planning for the client’s recovery. The experts we work with regularly at Synergy do a great job of making sure I am protected as are my clients.
