Medicare Advantage Plan liens are more of a threat to your client’s settlement than you may realize. Why? Their rules of the road when it comes to recovery of Conditional Payments.
The statute of limitations for Medicare’s recovery of Conditional Payments is three years from the date they have notice that your client has had a settlement. However, the same does not apply to Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs).
In fact, MAOs have no statute of limitations. They can come back to you or your client for money they think your client owes them at any time. Even months, years and decades after settlement. Virtually, forever.
This is a huge problem. Don’t let these rules of the road put you and your client at risk. Watch my video below to learn the best way to resolve this threat.
I’ll see you again next week!
