Complete Withdrawal/Reduction of a $30,000 Medicare Interest in a Minnesota Workers Compensation Case

In a Minnesota workers compensation case, Eric Oelrich was able to successfully resolve a claimed Medicare interest of $30,599.35 for $0. As occurs often, Medicare and CMS did not promptly respond to information and other requests and significantly impeded the ability of the parties to reach a resolution of the case. Within the parameters of the Minnesota Workers Compensation Act, Eric was able to resolve the non-Medicare claims favorably to his clients, narrow the scope of claims to be tried at a Formal Hearing, and ultimately obtain a full and complete withdrawal/reduction of Medicare's claim. While the involvement of Medicare can present problems in resolving Minnesota workers compensation cases, there are multiple ways to resolve a Medicare claim that do not involve a Medicare Set Aside Arrangement or other expensive and time-consuming methods.
