My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
First and foremost, you are under no obligation to provide this information to the attorney or medicare. Having said that, you would be a great asset to your patient's legal situation in rhis circumstance. I have personally had some various problems relating to liens with Medicare (cms), if any care is related to the injuries at hand that was covered by Medicare, your patients attorney needs to get ahead of the problem because the super lien from cms can become a big problem for any settlement negotiations if in fact it was related to the mva. If there is genuinely no relation between the injuries and the payments made by Medicare, then it shouldn't be a problem making a statement explaining that fact. Again, this decision is ultimately up to you but it can greatly help your patient's situation if you can support the idea that Medicare/cms is unrelated to certain medical care and thus any possible lien will a smaller amount.
