Who Pays the Bills?
March 1, 2016 § 2 Comments
Back in 2013, I posted about the MSSC’s decision in Memorial Hospital v. Proulx, which held that medical providers do not have a lien against the proceeds of a minor’s settlement. I think I aptly described that case as a “curveball for minor’s settlements.” You can revisit that post at this link.
Then last week, when I reprised “An Outline for Minor’s Settlements,” Randy Wallace picked it up, linked it, and did a nice piece on ERISA and subrogation that you should read and have in your minor’s settlement arsenal. You can access it at this link. His piece, which is well-researched and supported by authority, adds another dimension to the law of minor’s settlements, which on the surface appear simple, but can prove to be deceptively complex.
