Medicare Set Asides
Medicare set asides are a tricky issue with all sorts of technical requirements. The easiest way to know if one is needed is if the settlement is $250,000 or more, the Plaintiff is on social security, and/or the Plaintiff is on Medicare. The attached checklist is from the Georgia bar on the link here which is helpful in sorting through the issue. From prior experiences, if Medicare is involved in a case, it is better to start getting information sooner than later due to the amount of time required to get a lien amount.
