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.

TESTIMONIALS

"I learned of Synergy through the state trial lawyers association when I was looking for help in dealing with Medicare. As you know, dealing with Medicare can be difficult and time consuming. We all get the articles and updates regarding Medicare, but Synergy does an incredible job of clarifying so many questions. I cannot thank you and the Synergy staff enough for the assistance, insight, and professionalism. You can be sure that I will only be recommending Synergy to my clients for Medicare issues in the years to come."

I wanted to pass my highest recommendation to Synergy who we routinely get involved in cases when Medicare issues come up, especially when dealing with Medicare Set Asides. Synergy went beyond the call of duty in a recent case that was settled and dealt one-on-one with our clients and their family. They spent time on the phone with them to be sure they got all their questions answered and did a fantastic job dealing with Medicare.
