Speaker:


Josh Frankl

Lien Pros, LLC

Medicare is often the initial payer of medical, hospital and other medically-related expenses for personal injury plaintiffs. What distinguishes Medicare from other health care insurers is federal regulations allowing Medicare what has been commonly called subrogation and lien rights believed to be far superior to any other interest on a settlement or judgment proceeding. 

The attorney shares responsibility with the plaintiff for items related to Medicare’s claim as well as to protect Medicare’s “future interest”.  Ramifications of non-compliance can be severe.

This two credit CLE will discuss:
  • When Medicare set-asides are appropriate in liability and workers compensation cases;
  • Attorney and client liabilities for Medicare/Medicare/ERISA claims;
  • Procedures to  identify potential liens, initiate correspondence with the lien holder, audit and petition bills and payment summaries, and negotiate procurement offsets; and The use of Special Needs Trusts to protect client’s government benefits.
  • Structured Settlement Annuities for both plaintiff clients and attorney's fees.
This program has been approved by the Board on Continuing Legal Education of the Supreme Court of New Jersey for 2.0 hours of total CLE credit. Of these, 2.0 qualify as hours of credit towards civil trial certification. (Approved CLE Courses in NJ are Recognized for CLE Credit in New York.)

Cost: $25-Law Clerks/Paralegals/Legal Secretaries; $35-MCBA Young Lawyers; $45-MCBA Members; and $80-All Others
