In Oregon, can you give up your right to future medical?
#1
I am not saying I would do this at this point in my case but in the state of Oregon, can you give up your right to future medical in an effort to obtain a higher lump sum settlement?

An Attorney from Your State that Deals in w/c would be the Best to Talk to on this Matter. At the Top of the Page there is a Tab Titled "State Laws and Info." that may Help until Someone from Your State or Someone with Better Info. can Help! Welcome, and I Hope You Find the Answer You Need!Wink
I Wish Everyone in the World would Take just One Minute to Take a Deep Breath and Look at the Wonders around Them. Too Much Time caught Up in the Moment can Cause Us to Miss soo Much that is Good, and given Us Daily! We are just too Busy to See!

Why would you want to do that? In most cases that will not be allowed, primarily due to new Medicare Set aside rules. Most settlements must now be approved by CMS, and they will require a certain amount be "set aside" to pay for future medical.

This is to prevent you from taking cash up front, blowing it on a big boat (or cigarettes, whiskey and wild, wild women), and then sticking medicare (taxpayers) with your medical bills after you turn 65.

Besides, since most settlements are designed to compensate for lost earning potential and future medical, I am not sure removing one of the elements positions you well for more money.

Just curious, your name indicates you were injured in Idaho, but your question is about Oregon.......

Ace, in their other Post stated they are 6 hours away, meaning they could live in Idaho, a neighbor State.
