When you receive medical treatment for injuries sustained in an accident, Medicare may cover some or all of the costs. However, if you receive a settlement for those same injuries, Medicare may have a right to be reimbursed for the amount they paid for your medical bills.
This is called a "lien" and it means that Medicare has a legal claim to a portion of your settlement to cover their expenses. The good news is that your attorney may be able to negotiate with Medicare to reduce the amount they are owed, which can help maximize the amount of money you receive from your settlement.
It's important to keep in mind that every case is different and the rules surrounding Medicare liens can be complex. That's why it's crucial to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected.
