Is the Case Settled? Addressing Medicare/Medicaid/Hospital Lien Compliance Litigation Funding and the Use of Confidential Settlement Agreements – Presentation at Copeland Stair’s 2019 Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith Seminar

Fred Valz, Claire Sumner, Graham Thompson and Lacey Houghton educated attendees on important features to think about that will ensure a case is resolved, and to focus on more than just the actual settlement sum.  During the course of litigation, the Plaintiff is often continuing to receive significant medical treatment.  With respect to varied guidelines to medical liens and claims for medical reimbursement, presenters focused on the rules within Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina.  The goal of this presentation was to arm attendees with the knowledge and information to successfully negotiate a settlement that also includes resolution of all claims arising from the treatment given to the Plaintiff.
