Pennsylvania DPW announced new policies for lien recovery effective September 8, 2007. Among other things, these new rules seek to:
-- Limit how plaintiffs can allocate a settlement between pain and suffering and medical expense.
-- Require repayment even where the statute of limitations has run on a claim for medical expense.
-- Restrict the plaintiff’s ability to withdraw a claim for medical expense.
-- Eliminate the “make whole” argument.
-- Require notice to DPW of any attempt at allocation.
-- Prohibit allocating more than one-half of the recovery to pain and suffering and wage loss.
THESE RULES APPLY TO EVERY TORT CLAIM in PENNSYLVANIA — auto accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall — where DPW has paid the medical expense. These changes are immediately effective, and you need to be aware of them!
