Medicare has increased its enforcement against personal injury plaintiffs and their lawyers. Its for-profit partners have taken portions of settlements, denied eligibility to former plaintiffs, and sued trial lawyers for joint liability and double damages.

Join Jack Meligan, a financial advisor and holistic settlement planner with over thirty years of experience advising plaintiffs, as he walks you through Medicare’s evolving tactics and discusses practical steps you can take to protect yourself and your clients.

To discuss ethics and malpractice implications, Jack is joined by Jeremy Babener (special tax counsel at Lane Powell) and Trisha Thompson (a legal ethics attorney at Holland & Knight).

The presenters also review documentation that can be used to satisfy nonlitigation duties owed to clients on Medicare, tax, and other "specialized" issues in order to reduce your malpractice risk. If you don't want to create these yourselves, they discuss the template forms they offer at www.TrialLawyerProtection.com .
