MASS TORT SOLUTIONS

Due to their size and scope, mass tort lien resolution can be expensive and time consuming. S3’s team is dedicated to maximizing the efficiency of your mass tort process from start to finish, carrying the administrative burden and reducing settlement funding time.

MASS TORT SOLUTIONS

 

MEDICARE LIENS

The Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) provision of the Social Security Act gives Medicare the right to recover its interest on a settlement, judgment or award where there is found to be a liable third party. The MSP statute gives the parties and entities involved in a lawsuit an affirmative duty to:

  1. Notify Medicare when it may have an interest in a lawsuit
  2. Satisfy the interest
  3. Make Medicare the first payee in the lawsuit

Failure to comply can subject all parties, including attorneys, to double damages. S3’s Mass Tort process ensures compliance and expedites the settlement process. At S3, we work with Medicare’s Special Projects team, which specifically deals with Mass Tort Cases, to streamline the entire lien process. This allows us to:

  1. Potentially negotiate global deals with Medicare and/or
  2. Expedite aggregate resolution of claims by taking the following steps en masse:
    1. Notify Medicare of the lawsuit and detail the exact injuries sustained by the claimant
    2. Audit and Dispute claims itemizations
    3. Negotiate procurement offsets pursuant to 42 CFR §411.37
    4. File appeals, waiver requests, and compromise requests as needed
    5. Close duplicate files.
