Oklahoma Plaintiff’s Medicare Lien Fully Waived by MASSIVE
MASSIVE ensured an Oklahoma Plaintiff was able to take home her full net settlement despite a Medicare lien that was more than ten times the settlement amount.
The plaintiff was a part of a mass tort Genzyme Hernia Mesh claim. The lien amount was over $100,000 and not part of a global resolution, which would have wiped out her $10,000 settlement. Legally, Medicare was entitled to the entire net amount. However, MASSIVE’s team of experts were on the case and appealed on the plaintiff’s behalf. Ultimately, we obtained the waiver in full and the plaintiff received her money back.
“The discretionary nature of Medicare waivers means even partial waivers are often an uphill battle. We were very pleased with this outcome, having gotten the lien waived in full.” Robert Zabawski, Mass Tort Lead Attorney at MASSIVE.
