Enforcement of Hospital and Medical Liens
We all know the great things that hospitals and medical providers and their
employees do for individuals. They save lives and offer immediate medical
attention to individuals suffering from ailments or injuries. With beneficial
services come great costs, which not all patients can afford. If a patient
you treated can't pay off their medical expenses, you can depend on
the D. Baker Law Group, P.C. to help you enforce a hospital lien or medical
lien. Through our legal services, we can help secure payment from the
injured party's settlement or judgment proceeds.
Reasons to enforce a hospital lien include:
- Patient couldn't afford hospital bill
- Patient didn't have insurance
- Patient's insurer failed to pay in full
Patients who suffer injuries in accidents are often faced with expensive
medical bills, which they may attempt to have their insurance company
cover. Some insurance companies, however, may not cover the patient's
medical expenses in full. In some cases, claims adjusters try to limit
how much they owe. As a result, the bill you send to your patient may
not be paid. We work to right this situation and collect the money that
is owed to you.
We Understand Hospital & Medical Liens and How to Create and Enforce Them.
Hospital liens and medicals liens can be trickier to create and enforce
than one might think. There are a number of strict substantive and procedural
requirements you must meet in order for the lien to be valid. Neglecting
to follow the procedures can invalidate the lien.
In Massachusetts hospitals, health maintenance organizations and medical
and dental service corporations which furnish medical or other services
to any person injured in an accident not covered by the workers' compensation
laws has the right to assert a lien for the reasonable and necessary charges
upon the net amount payable to such injured person, his heirs or legal
representative out of the total amount of any recovery or sum had or collected
or to be collected, whether by judgment or by settlement or compromise,
from another person as damages on account of such injuries.
In Rhode Island, the law is substantially similar to Massachusetts, with
one notable exception. Rhode Island only allows hospitals to assert a
lien for services rendered, not health maintenance organizations and medical
and dental service corporations.
