Helping You Create a Life Care Plan
Traumatic brain injury victims often require lifelong care after their car accidents or other personal injury accidents. Many find that they need in-home health care or hands-on care at an assisted living facility. To ensure that all potential future costs are added to your settlement agreement, our personal injury lawyers will work with you to create a full life care plan.
In working closely with our brain injury clients, we often find it necessary to retain a professional life care planner. This planner is able to craft a plan that fits each unique situation and then properly estimates the total costs related to any ongoing medical treatment.
Serious Injuries in a State With a Helmet Law
According to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), all parties to a workers’ comp case must do everything they can to protect Medicare’s interests. This is especially true when workers’ compensation claimants are seeking costs to cover future medical payments. A workers’ comp Medicare set-aside agreement places any funds for future costs obtained in a settlement into a separate account. Once those funds have been exhausted, then Medicare will step in and pay for any remaining medical care stemming from the workers’ compensation accident.
Medicare set-aside agreements come with very specific rules and regulations that apply differently to each unique agreement. However, one rule holds true: If you spend any money that has been set-aside for medical treatment in other ways, for instance buying a car, Medicare will not cover any medical costs once your funds have been depleted.
