Compromise and Release documents needed to be signed before Medicare will review the proposed settlement.
After getting a medical set aside analysis offer from the defense, which buy the way seems bias just for the fact that it was done by the defense and not a unbiased party. I agreed to submit it to Medicare in the hopes that they would see it for what it is , a low ball estimate designed to save the employer money and reject it .
Now my lawyer says that there are additional papers that need to be sighed before Medicare will review the proposed settlement. ( In other words if Medicare doesn't see that there is a agreement in principal they will not bother to review the Medicare Set -Aside analysis.
After looking at these papers I feel like they are really meant to protect the employer and not me and i also find it hard to find that medicare would require my signing of these. Such as a Voluntary Resignation From Employment form.
By signing this I would be.
1) Releasing any claim to back pay. ( they owe me vacation pay )
2)Waiving my 48 hour provision to rescind any agreement ,including the corresponding Compromise and Release.
There is more but this is a good place to start. Is there a phone number to contact Medicare and see if these things are needed
