Ritsema & Lyon has a well respected Medicare department to assist our clients with the growing number of Medicare issues. This service is available to guide you through the complex maze of Medicare issues that affect the settlement of workers' compensation claims.

MSP Solutions will help you by:

  • Determining which cases need to be evaluated for Medicare issues.
  • Evaluating each case by using the underlying facts and current workers' compensation law to minimize the amount required to fund any type of Medicare set-aside agreement.
  • Shaping each case to prepare for settlement and Medicare issues. This prevents the problem created when protecting Medicare's interest becomes an afterthought.
  • Negotiating with Medicare how much, if any, needs to be set aside to protect Medicare's interests.
  • Establishing the appropriate vehicle to manage medical funds which are set aside for future benefits covered by Medicare.
  • Providing training to assist our clients in determining when a case needs to be evaluated for Medicare issues and how to shape a case from the beginning to minimize Medicare funding at the time of settlement.

For more information, please contact Dee Dafoe of our Denver office.
