Florida Attorneys: Resolution Of Subrogation Claims And Liens To Medical Providers

Subrogation.jpgIf you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and retained a Florida personal injury attorney, then you have probably heard that attorney talk to you about subrogation claims, liens, or other claims that must be satisfied from your personal injury settlement. Several strict rules are in place governing personal injury settlements. Some of these rules protect your private health insurance company (i.e. FloridaBlue, Aetna, United Healthcare, etc.), Tricare, Florida Medicaid, Medicare, or a Worker's Compensation carrier. If any of these entities or organizations have paid all or part of your medical bills and/or lost wages, you are obligated to ensure that they are reimbursed when you settle your personal injury claim. As this process has become more complex, some companies and attorneys have started to provide services in assisting with the resolution of medical liens or subrogation claims. After years of litigation and two trips to the Florida Supreme Court, the Florida Bar Board of Governors approved recommendations from its Board Review Committee on Professional Ethics (BRCPE) that would include having a judge oversee those arrangements and empowering that judge to change the compensation of your personal injury attorney and/or the attorney handling the lien. According to BRCPE's Chair, Carl Schwait, who was interviewed for the Florida Bar News Journal, "there is, in fact, a cottage industry [for lien resolutions]. Normal personal injury lawyers may not have the ability to do lien resolutions following the trial. They go out and hire people who have a specialty in this lien resolution."
