Medicare is entitled to be reimbursed for payments made. However, they will often compromise. Have your attorney negotiate with them. If you do not have an attorney, hire an experienced injury lawyer. Good luck.
Medicare is entitled to be repaid under the law. However, these are usually negotiable and it is not unusual for the attorney to be able to negotiate the amount down.
