My husband accepted a $5,000 settlement from an auto accident
last year. We have now been contacted by CMS stating that we owe them between $1,250 and $2484.53. We knew nothing about this at the time the settlement was offered. Is this true that we need to pay them back?
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: We live in IL but the accident was when we lived in TN. Apparently the area we were hit in was in Georgia.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Yes, everything was filed and reported. We got the settlement earlier this year and received this notice in September.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I need to know what the charges are for this service.
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: Do I have the option to not speak if it is too high for me?
