Is a Medicare Set-Aside a lien by the carrier?
Hi everyone! I settled my wc case for a lump sum which included a medicare set-aside. My third-party action is close to settling too - but there is an issue. Is the medicare set aside which was paid for by workers' comp. carrier, exempt from the wc lien? My wc atty said that the money for the set-aside is not a lien in the third party action. My lawyer handling the 3rd party action has no clue if the comp. carrier can claim a lien on the mediare set aside money. Does anyone have an opinion or experience that may be able to help me? The set aside is close to 50k so the issue is really important. Thanks for any and all replies, Danabell (in upstate NY)
