Negotiating Medical Liens
Colorado's New Law Helps Injury Victims
- Before a medical lien can be issued, the injured party must be informed of the alternate methods available to pay for their medical bills such as workers comp, health insurance, medicare, etc.
- In the event that you do not receive a settlement to cover these costs, you are not liable for any part of the medical lien which is great news for persons injured in Colorado.
- If you do receive a settlement, but the total amount is less than what the medical lien is, then you are not responsible for paying the amount that exceeds your settlement. However, the lien holder will still take the full settlement in these cases to recoup most of the costs.
- If a lien is assigned to a third party(typically debt collectors that buy your debt for a reduced cost) this reduced cost is not allowed to be used against you during settlement negotiations so you can get compensation for the full amount that the lien was for instead of the reduced amount the third party paid, even though they will make you pay back the full amount plus interest. Another win for the victim.
- Medical liens can no longer be assigned to debt collection agencies. Debt collection can severely impact your credit score and ability to acquire loans in the future, so this law change is a big win for people injured in Colorado that don’t have the funds to pay for their medical bills.
