- There are important differences between the coverage provided by Medicaid and Medicare, the applicable laws and the rules pertaining to recovery rights that all auto accident attorneys must know.
- Attorneys must know what issues and problems to watch for regarding Medicaid and Medicare eligibility, notification, condition payments and accounting for Medicaid and Medicare lien holders in settlement releases.
Additionally, attorney Alison Duffy will also share sample form letters for communicating with Medicaid and Medicare as well as step-by-step timelines for auto attorneys to resolve Medicaid and Medicare liens.
