Medicare Veritas Law: Defending Truth, Upholding Justice

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

Injury Attorneys Protecting Your Benefits in Grand Juction, CO

There is often confusion surrounding legal rights after an accident, particularly when Medicare covers medical expenses. It's essential to understand that receiving Medicare coverage does not hinder your ability to seek compensation from the responsible party for your injuries.

Veritas will pursue a claim against the at-fault party that caused your injuries and other damages. After you receive a settlement or jury award, we can help structure your funds to protect your Medicare benefits.

How Will Your Settlement Affect Medicare?

If you are over 65 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.

Don't settle for just Medicare medical treatment; let us help you get all of the compensation you deserve.

We Work to Protect Your Benefits

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.

A self-settled special-needs trust may protect your settlement or jury award from affecting your eligibility for Medicare, Medicaid or other forms of public assistance.

If you live on the Western Slope or Front Range of Colorado, talk to an attorney at Veritas 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.
