Medicare Paid For My Medical Treatment After My Accident…Now What?

Many people misunderstand their legal rights following an accident, especially when Medicare is paying for their medical treatment. Just because Medicare is paying for treatment does not prevent you pursuing a claim against the at-fault party who caused your injuries. Our firm will pursue a claim against the at-fault party who caused your injuries and other damages. After receiving a settlement or jury award, we can help structure your funds to protect your Medicare benefits. Don't settle for just Medicare medical treatment; let us help you get all of the compensation you deserve.

Will Your Settlement Affect Medicare?

It Takes Proper Planning To Protect Your Personal Injury Settlement From Medicare Reimbursement.

If you are over 65 years old and receive your health care through Medicare, the federal government will seek reimbursement for your medical treatment associated with a personal injury accident. In fact, federal law requires you to report the claim to the Medicare Coordination of Benefits (COB) contractor responsible for administering your health care case.

By federal law, Medicare is a secondary treatment option for medical services related to a personal injury accident. Your doctor should be billing any available insurance coverage first. If you receive treatment through Medicare, you may be required to reimburse the government out of your settlement or jury award.

If you fail to report your accident, you will jeopardize your eligibility for treatment. Through strategic asset protection planning, we can help you legally protect your compensation from repaying Medicare. Doehling Law will handle everything related to your case.

See us about setting up a self-settled special needs trust to protect your settlement or jury award from affecting your eligibility for Medicare, Medicaid or other forms of public assistance.

If you reside in the Western Slope of Colorado or the Front Range, and are on Medicare, talk to an attorney at Doehling Law before you report your accident. We will explain your options for recovering full and fair compensation from the negligent party, as well as show you legal ways to keep as much of the settlement as the law allows.
