My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Louisiana
My wife is a case manager at a hospital here in louisiana and she runs across cases where Medicare will refuse to pay a patients medical bills if they have filed a personal injury suit. When Medicare runs their social security number and see that a suit has been filed, then medicare places the bill burden on the offending party..In my case, I am attempting to initiate a suit against Round up weed killer
for Lymphoma cancer..I have talked to a couple of attorneys, and have been told different, that Medicare will pay the bills during the course of the suit but now I need further advice. Has any one run across this in the past?
Has anyone had trouble getting Medicare to pay bills during the course of a law suit? I would hate to file a suit and then have to go back for treatment in a month and not be able to get the bills paid. Is my wife wrong? Does anyone have any suggestions besides just listening to an attorney say go with it? thanks
