Resolving a Medicare lien can be costlier and more time consuming than most other claims of similar value and complexity. Part of the reason for this is the relative rarity with which your claims adjusters process these claims. Part of it comes from the fact that Medicare regulations are constantly evolving. And, of course, the intricacies of properly reporting and filing these claims simply take a long time to complete.

We've established a simple, three step process for effectively resolving Medicare liens - and really, handling all Medicare compliance issues your company is faced with - quickly and efficiently.

Step 1: Partner With Flagship Services Group

  • Obtain the necessary documents to determine Medicare's lien amount.

  • Review the claim carefully to remove any erroneous or overstated charges so we're certain you're not going to pay a dime more than you legally owe Medicare.

Step 2: Sit back and relax
