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 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.
