Unlike other companies that may provide services for CMS or have a financial interest in having settlement funds placed in a Medicare Set Aside, we happily embrace our role as an advocate for the client. We are not a third party neutral nor will we ever advise that a client’s settlement funds be used for services that are not required or needed. We prefer to begin work on Medicare files as early in the process as possible, preferably before settlement negotiations begin. We often work with the defense to coordinate how claims are reported to CMS post settlement to prevent the problem of getting a CMS Final Demand Letter that greatly exceeds the last CMS Conditional Payment Log. We resolve both traditional Medicare and Medicare Advantage claims while taking care not to compromise the client’s eligibility to receive future benefits.
