This is purely a rant. I have a case that is settled. The case in St. Louis has settled for $100,000. There are liens from three providers, Medicare, Blue Cross (the employer's insurance plan), and Tri Care which provides insurance if you're in the military.
Tri Care paid less than $300 in bills. It wants to hold up a $100,000 settlement for 6 months to make sure that no more bills come in. It is inflexible. People need to write their representatives in opposition to these entites having the opportunity to mess with our clients lives.
