Description: It is increasingly common these days. Personal injury attorneys settle a case, only to find themselves sued by a U.S. Attorney for failing to reimburse Medicare for conditional payments as required by the Medicare Secondary Payer Act. In some cases, the attorney may be required to pay fines in addition to the reimbursements and interest, a costly proposition. Are you up to speed on issues surrounding Medicare Advantage, TRICARE, veterans’ claims, and Medicare set-asides? 
Join nationally recognized healthcare lien and resolution expert Franklin P. Solomon and go-to lien resolution provider Brett Newman as they offer a practical, in-depth CLE presentation. 
Topics Covered:  
•                      What can you do to settle personal injury suits cleanly and avoid costly litigation and penalties?  
•                      What recent cases can inform you about protecting your settlements and, as attorneys, yourselves, from post-settlement federal lawsuits? 
•                      Is your firm set up to meet government expectations?  
•                      What role might experts play in navigating these pitfalls?
•                      Statutes discussed:
1.       Medicare Advantage (42 CFR Part 422) 
2.       Federal Medical Care Recover Act (FMCRA) (42 USC § 2651) 
3.       CHAMPVA (38 CFR § 17.271) 
4.       Armed Forces Act (10 USC §1095) 
5.       Veterans’ Benefits (38 USC §1729) 
6.       Set-Asides under the Medicare Secondary Payer Act [42 USC § 1395y(b)(2)(B)(ii)] 
Speaker bios: 
Franklin P. Solomon, Esq., Attorney & Founder, Solomon Law Firm
A graduate of Rutgers University School of Law at Camden, Franklin Solomon is based in Cherry Hill, NJ, with a practice focused on evaluation, litigation and resolution of healthcare “liens” and reimbursement claims. Mr. Solomon represents personal injury victims and their attorneys in defending against claims by health plans and government benefits programs seeking payment out of tort recoveries. Among his significant cases in the field, Mr. Solomon argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court in Perreira v. Rediger, 169 N.J. 399 (2001), obtaining a decision which prohibited health insurers’ reimbursement claims against their insureds’ tort recoveries. He was plaintiffs’ counsel in Levine v. United Healthcare, 402 F.3d 156 (3d Cir. 2005), a federal class action challenging reimbursement claims of ERISA-governed health plans. He was also appellate counsel in Wurtz v. The Rawlings Company, 761 F.3d (2d Cir. 2014), a class action challenging New York insurers’ reimbursement claims against their insureds, and was plaintiffs’ counsel in Taransky v. Sebelius, 760 F.3d 307 (3d Cir. 2014), a class action challenging Medicare’s claims for reimbursement out of tort recoveries. More recently Mr. Solomon was appellate counsel in Arnone v. Aetna, 860 F.3d 97 (2d Cir. 2017), a decision which subjected ERISA plan disability insurers to state anti-subrogation law. Prior to opening his own firm, Mr. Solomon’s practice included 20 years of litigating mass tort and individual personal injury claims on behalf of plaintiffs.
