This is a common question we get from our clients. Our practice is to answer this at the beginning of the case because it will have an impact on how much money our client will receive.
The laws on this subject are complicated and are frequently changing. This blog is not meant to provide legal advice on this topic but to offer some general information.
If your medical bills are paid for by Medicare or Medical Assistance, then each has a right under the law to be paid back the money which has been spent on your care and is related to the case.
Therefore, it is important to obtain the amount of the medical bills that Medicare or Medical Assistance is claiming as being related to the case. This should be done as early in the case as possible.
When you speak with a lawyer about your case, let the lawyer know whether you are a Medicare or Medical Assistance recipient.
