Massachusetts Slip and Falls and Mass Health Liens

Oftentimes when a person living in Massachusetts is injured in a slip and fall, and has Mass Health coverage, Mass Health will have a lien for any money they paid toward your medical bills for treatment related to the accident.  That means that before you can get your money out of your slip and fall settlement, Mass Health must be paid back.  Usually, Mass Health will negotiate a bit to take into account that your attorney is taking part of the settlement and that there are likely some expenses as well that were incurred in bringing the case forward.  Usually, however, Mass Health does not significantly reduce their liens against Massachusetts slip and fall case settlements.
