Faster Medicare lien resolution and timely updates
At MASSIVE, we know that Medicare impacts millions of Americans. Medicare lien laws become more complex all the time. The task of lien resolution became more complex in 2007 when President Bush signed the Medicare, Medicaid, & SCHIP Extension Act (MMSEA) and then in 2013 when President Obama signed the Strengthening Medicare and Repaying Taxpayers Act (SMART). These changes, along with Medicare now covering more than 50 Million Americans, put stress on both your law firm and the Medicare Trust Fund. Medicare liens exist and Medicare requires repayment of its “liens” because Medicare is considered a secondary payer of benefits.
