Most settlements of personal injury claims will require resolution of healthcare liens – whether asserted by the claimant’s private health insurance plan or a government plan Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare.  Whatever the reason, when a lien has been asserted against settlement proceeds, the party who has custody of those assets is obligated to accurately track, negotiate and report on the resolution of that lien.  Failure to comply fully with the tangle of health care lien rules and regulations can expose all parties involved in a settlement to financial risks.  Our lien resolution services are designed to comply with those rules and regulations and reduce or eliminate those risks.
