Lien Resolution

Lien Resolution Services

The most common reason for a disruption or delay in settlement disbursement is unresolved liens. Moreover, failing to successfully resolve liens may jeopardize settlement funds and cause severe penalties. With years of experience working closely with reputable lien resolution experts, Jay Scarola can help you streamline the process of pinpointing and resolving liens every step of the way.

Common Kinds Of Liens

Medicaid Liens

Medicaid regulations are extremely complicated and vary from state to state. Most of the time, Medicare can and will seek reimbursement from a part of the settlement. Our partners can help injured claimants meet legal requirements and preserve Medicaid benefits by working with local Medicaid offices.

Medicare Liens

Medicare Secondary Payer laws require Medicare to be the first payee of a lawsuit in cases involving Medicare beneficiaries. The beneficiary is responsible for determining whether or not a lien exists, and to report it to Medicare. Jay Scarola can connect claimants with partners who help ensure all of the appropriate legal requirements are met and their Medicare benefits remain safely preserved.

Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Liens

Claimants who receive veterans’ benefits to cover the cost of dental care, medical care, surgical procedures, or hospitalization may be subject to seizure to repay a lien.

ERISA or Private Healthcare Liens

An ERISA or private healthcare plan may try to take a percentage of the settlement amount (or in certain cases, the whole settlement) to recover the medical benefits it has distributed for the client.
