Introduction to Medicare Lien Resolution Services
When it comes to settlement funds, “primary payer” entities including Medicare, Medicaid, ERISA healthcare providers and military healthcare providers seek reimbursement for medical expenditures made on the settlement recipient’s behalf. If not addressed promptly and in a proper manner, the liens can significantly impede the overall settlement process and lead to increased costs.
Regarding Medicare law, if a beneficiary is involved in a lawsuit, it is required of the no-fault insurance, liability insurance and workers’ compensation to pay for any medical services or equipment before Medicare pays. It is the responsibility of attorneys in addition to their clients to ensure compliance, making every possible effort to communicate with Medicare about any primary payer that might be responsible for the medical expenses for an injured client.
Medicare is considered a second payer for medical expenses for a beneficiary under circumstances when payment has been made or can be made under a workers’ compensation plan or another type of plan, such as no-fault insurance or a liability or auto insurance policy or plan. This is commonly referred to as the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) Program.
In some cases, medical expenses are in dispute and primary insurance fails to pay for services. In these cases, Medicare may act as the primary payer, meaning it is subject to recovery of the expenses based on your client’s award, settlement, or judgement. Medicare will also remain the primary payer if a beneficiary is not covered by any other type of coverage.

As an attorney, your firm’s reputation is built on your service. Attorneys who focus on personal injury know that providing comprehensive services for Medicare liens and other entities is time consuming and difficult and also comes with significant consequences if the lien resolution process is not meticulously executed.

Resolving liens has become complex, requiring expert work. For many attorneys, it is one of the most frustrating legal experiences to work in. You must figure out many details, including which federal, state and/or private or ERISA healthcare coverage paid for the treatment of your client. Sometimes it is straightforward, and your client comes along with an organized file that has copies of all documentation and medical bills for each payment – but it is not usually that simple. Many clients come with multiple liens linked with their recovery and some do not even know which providers paid for their treatments and lack proper documentation. Counsel is instead left to figure out all these details.

Specific knowledge is required to finalize liens, including a vast understanding of rules and procedures, which are ever-changing.
