Austin Medicare and Medicaid Attorneys
Medicare and Medicaid have a right of subrogation. This means that if Medicare or Medicaid has paid medical bills related to your injury, and you receive a settlement from the negligent party who injured you or judgment against that defendant, the government has a right to recover what it has paid out of the settlement or judgment. Dealing with Medicare and Medicaid in such situations can be complex. Often, the government demands payment for medical bills from the settlement for treatment that is unrelated to your injuries. In many cases, Medicare or Medicaid will allow a reduction, or will negotiate, on the amount of money required to pay it back. If you are hurt and Medicare or Medicaid has contacted you, or if you have been notified of a hospital lien, contact the lawyers at Allison and Ward in Austin to discuss your specific situation.
