Utah Accident Attorneys Need to Consider Medicare Interests During Settlement

Settlements following a Utah accident can sometimes be complicated and involved. This is especially true if Medicare has paid any of the bills in the case. If they have paid bills related to treatment, the attorney must be very careful to make sure that Medicare’s interests are adequately protected. This involves not only reaching resolution on amounts that Medicare has paid in the past but also determining if Medicare is likely to pay for medical expenses in the future. If future payments by Medicare is likely, then the attorney needs to consider setting up a Medicare set aside fund to protect Medicare’s interests moving forward.
