Epiq ensures liens are resolved efficiently and in a timely manner, getting more award dollars to your clients faster.
Most mass tort plaintiffs will incur significant medical expenses as a result of their injuries, giving rise to liens from Medicare/Medicaid, state health agencies, private insurers, and other service providers. Plaintiffs must repay those liens if and when they are awarded damages in an action. If the liens aren’t dealt with correctly, there may be negative consequences for your clients, including financial obligations and delayed payments in the case.
Liens are negotiated directly with lienholders, often in ways that reduce your client’s overall liability.
We also work with plaintiffs to minimize any impact a large payment might have on existing benefits plaintiffs are receiving by assisting them with special needs trusts (SNTs) and/or structured settlements.
