This Just In: MSPRC Announces $300 Threshold in Liability Cases

A new alert was posted on the MSPRC.info website on September 6, 2011. The MSPRC has announced a $300 threshold in liability cases that qualify based on the type of incident and settlement distribution. From www.MSPRC.info:

Beneficiary Alert: $300 Threshold on Liability Settlements

Medicare has implemented a $300 threshold for certain Liability Insurance cases. If all of Medicare’s criteria are met, the MSPRC will not recover against the beneficiary’s settlement, judgment, award or other payment.If you’re a beneficiary, what does this mean for you?As of September 6, 2011, if you’ve received a lump sum settlement of $300 or less, and your case meets certain conditions, Medicare will not recover from that settlement. These conditions include:

  1. Your settlement is related to an alleged physical trauma-based incident, not an alleged exposure, ingestion, or implantation, and
  2. You do not have any additional settlements related to the same alleged incident.

Please note that this threshold specifically excludes settlements where an insurer is paying your medicals bills directly or on an ongoing basis. This threshold also does not apply if a demand letter was already issued for your case. We have posted a more detailed explanation in the Attorney and Insurer Toolkits.

TESTIMONIALS

"I just want to thank Synergy for their great work in getting a health insurance lien resolved. The health insurance company refused to reduce their lien a penny from a motorcycle accident involving my client who was not wearing a helmet, a fact that would have hurt our award in front of a jury. Synergy put tremendous pressure on this company, and after months of bombarding this insurance company with statutory requests and threats, they were able to get them to give in and reduce the lien significantly. The cost was minimal in relation to the hard work they put in, and the savings my client received. Client was very happy, and it allowed me to close out a case that I had resolved over 6 months before. Keep them in mind if you are dealing with a smug insurance adjuster who felt confident he would not have to reduce a lien, like I was dealing with. Thank you very much Synergy."

“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.”
