Medical Liens arising from Auto Accidents?
Did you know that Medicare, VA, Indian Health and other government funded agencies and policies, have a super lien on anything you recover from an automobile accident.
Simply put if you receive these benefits, and you recover money from an automobile accident, you have to pay them back.
Did you know that health care providers have liens if properly recorded for the balance between what you private insurance paid and what the bill actually was for the service. You all know the insurance companies pay much less of the bill by contract. If it is an accident case the health care provider gets to recover the balance if all the lien steps were taken.
This is a very complex area of the law and not even some lawyers understand it.
