Mallinckrodt Opioid Bankruptcy PI Claimant Trust – What’s Next?

MASSIVE is proud to be the exclusive lien resolution administrator for the Mallinckrodt Opioid Bankruptcy PI Claimant Trust. Our job will be to resolve hundreds of thousands of liens to protect claimant recoveries and future benefits.


What does that mean? MASSIVE’s process will automatically obtain and resolve liens in the following manner:  

  1. Rawlings Lien Resolution Program (All Claimants)
  2. Optum/UnitedHealthcare Lien Resolution Program (All Claimants)
  3. Benefit Recovery Lien Resolution Program (All Claimants)
  4. MSP Recoveries Lien Resolution Program (All Claimants)
  5. HMS Medicaid Global Resolution Program1 (All Claimants/20 states)
  6. Medicaid in the State of Residence via Law Firm or Claims Administrator information (All Claimants)
  7. If either the Law Firm (representing each claimant) or the state Medicaid agency identifies additional Medicaid Managed Care Organizations’ claims, MASSIVE will then reach out to that Managed Care Organization (All Claimants)  
  8. If either the Law Firm or the Claims Administrator identifies an additional health insurance and requests resolution, MASSIVE will resolve that lien (All Claimants)


Any other liens must be identified by the claimant or law firm. Nevertheless, MASSIVE will resolve those liens as requested.


MASSIVE will present this plan to the American Association for Justice’s Opioid Litigation Group on Saturday, July 16. MASSIVE is pleased to be a co-sponsor of that AAJ Litigation Group. If you are an attorney with questions on that Mallinckrodt lien resolution process, please reach out to us during the conference.
