Medicare, Medicaid or your group health insurance company may have paid for medical bills that you accumulated as a result of being a victim of medical malpractice as a result of the negligent act or omission of a doctor, dentist, nurse or other health care provider.

If you filed a medical malpractice claim and then you recovered compensation for your injuries from the responsible health care provider, you may owe money to Medicare, Medicaid and/or your health insurance carrier for the medical bills they paid that were a direct result of the negligent medical conduct. This is not a choice but a legal requirement that you reimburse these third parties for the monies they paid on your behalf. These reimbursement claims are called “subrogation claims.”

Every state is different in the manner in which they deal with Medicare claims. Medicare is a federal program meaning irrespective of where you live, of where the bills are incurred or what state they are paid in, if Medicare paid your bills, you will have the partial obligation of reimbursing Medicare. If you have questions about your medical malpractice case call Attorney Dan Newlin now for a free consultation.

Likewise, if a medical bill for services relating to your injury is unpaid, the unpaid healthcare provider may also have a subrogation claim and they will also have to be paid out of the recovery. Subrogation laws are not simple and they change from state to state, so you will need the advice and counsel of an experienced trial lawyer on your side.  If you or a family member have incurred bills related to a medical malpractice claim and you have recovered damages for those injuries, you will almost certainly owe a reimbursement to any third party who has paid the related expenses on your behalf. The reimbursement laws are complicated but cannot be ignored. You need to call (312) 888-8000 and speak to one of the experienced and committed lawyers at the Law Offices of Attorney Dan Newlin to help you with your options.
