Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) Solutions
PROVIDE ADDITIONAL PROTECTION TO YOU AND YOUR CLIENTS
As a plaintiff law firm handling personal injury cases, you know to be especially careful when addressing ongoing medical needs post-settlement. It’s imperative to protect your clients’ future Medicare benefits while avoiding unexpected ramifications (sometimes years later) for your clients and for your firm.
Medicare can 1) deny future medical benefits to your former client or 2) pay those future bills for the former client, but later seek repayment, from either the former client or the attorney who represented the former client (you). If Medicare chases the former client, you will likely be receiving a phone call from that former client questioning your original handling of the case – did you effectively plan for and protect the client’s future Medicare benefits? Worst-case scenario: It turns into a state bar complaint against you and/or legal malpractice action.
This scenario can be absolutely prevented by incorporating quality MSA solutions into each case.
PROTECT YOUR CLIENTS AND YOUR FIRM WITH MSA SOLUTIONS
By having Vista Consulting Team’s MSA Solutions Group involved in your cases early on, you can have MSA allocations created that allow you to properly take future Medicare services and payments into account.
Taking this step can increase settlement values and help protect clients’ future Medicare benefits. Request a Vista MSA allocation early in your case, well before the mediation begins:
- An MSA allocation is the best way to avoid future potential issues.
- An MSA allocation is an added case cost but pays for itself many times over in the form of protection against a future disgruntled client, time, expense, stress, and reputation risk. Often, that case cost can be passed along to the client.
- An MSA allocation helps ensure that when your case is closed, it stays closed.
