I sure hope that no one is taking that drug .......although it may work for one in a million its not good for the many that had taken it and passed away. there is just something wrong with a drug that slowly kills you. the fda , manufacturer or dr. tells you it will help you , lies . clinical trails WE are the guinea pigs ! at there expense!!!!!!!
thank you for letting me vent.

Today I recd a letter from the lawyers checking on the Medicare Part C leins for Girardi Keese. So I believe they are going forward. I called and the woman said once the lien status is verified, the case goes on for review to see if we should be receiving more.

I got the same letter today. Called the attorney but could only leave voice mail. Reading the ltr it almost sounds like they are giving all of the second check to Medicare as a payback for them having to foot the bills.

I think it is a percentage and depends on which medical carrier. I am sure the date of injury verses settlement matter. I had my bypass in 2002. I tried finding more info but too vonfusing.

spent 3 hrs on the phone yesterday with attorney and the medical lien who is handling all of the claims for Medicare. She said that most if not all the claimants will probably not get any thing as will all go to Medicare plus if they want to sue to all of the rest that is not covered by the 2nd check. All for the rich and none for the injured parties.

Did medicare cover your injury from Avandia? I had private insurance at the time. When I received my first check, the letter from the lawyer stated that Garretson did not find any liens, and the letter also stated how much the amount of my second check would be. It said once the settlement committee reviewed their findings, they would then release the funds for the second check

I received a letter from my attorney saying they were going to arbitration with some of the cases. Has anyone heard that this has happened or if there is a date?

Hi, I just found this site and was wondering why I had not seen anything new for some time. I lost my husband in 2007. Has anyone used Phillips Law Firm.

I wonder why Medicare is able to take from individual claims? The states filed against GSK for Medicaid claims and won millions. Why didn't Medicare do the same instead instead of taking from all of us? Doesn't seem fair to those us us who were the ones injured.

I got a call from my late fathers attorney last month saying I will get a letter with the settlement amount in sept. and a check in November. I then received documents from garretson about medical liens. The attorney is from NM.
The paralegal I've talked to has been nice but can't tell me anything.

To post 198 on question of medicare. Medicare and medicaid are 2 difference systems. Medicare is what you pay when you pay into FICA, that when you become retired, medicare also kicks in. Medicaid is a form of welfare, which a person has never payed into but qualified to re'cd health benefits. If this person, who is on medicaid re'cd an award from a lawsuit or any type of lottery winner or even money you inherit, medicaid can and will take a percentage back for the "welfare" payment toward health care.
