Maintaining Medicaid benefits

Case Size:

$60,000 SNT

Summary:

Mike & his wife were involved in a motorcycle accident and Mike sustained significant injuries, including: double amputation of legs, amputation of right hand, and abdominal injuries resulting in a colostomy. Mike received Medicaid and SSI benefits. The insurance policy maxed out at $100,000, in which Mike received $60,000.

Actions:

Ametros placed Mike’s $60,000 into a Special Needs Trust to preserve his Medicaid benefits, but also provide for other needs not covered by government benefits. (A future medical malpractice case also was placed into the SNT for Mike’s sole benefit.)

Results:

If Mike had received the $60,000 directly or mishandled it in the process, his medical benefits and other government assistance could have been jeopardized, severely impacting his future care and comfort.

Actions:

Ametros’ team became involved due to the various government programs Sarah was receiving to determine how the settlement would impact those benefits.

Results:

With all of the moving parts, our team was able to coordinate a plan that would protect Sarah’s means-tested benefit eligibility with the use of a special needs trust (SNT), provide her with resources to assist with monthly allowable payments through an ABLE account, and preserve her Medicare eligibility by professionally administering her allocated future medical funds in the MSA.

Value:

Freedom to treat

Case Size:

$11,186 MSA

Actions:

Carol wanted to settle her case, but United was struggling to get it closed because Carol wanted to make sure she fully understood what settlement meant, what she would be responsible for, and that it would be the right thing for her future.

Results:

United Airlines sent Ametros Carol’s case information to Ametros to explain the settlement process and responsibilities. Ametros reached out and explained their professional administration service, CareGuard, to her let her know that with their platform she could see any provider and use any pharmacy.

Carol loved the idea of having Ametros completely manage her funds for her so that she could take the time to focus on her family’s love for traveling.

Case Size:

$26,203 MSA
$23,797 MCP

Summary:

Leonard was hesitant about settling his case and United could not get it settled because he wasn’t sure the amount being offered would be enough money to cover all of his future medical care. He also had gotten an MSA done for him that left out some of his expenses, and he wanted to make sure these would be covered.

Actions:

United referred Leonard's case over to Ametros to help him feel more comfortable with settlement. Ametros worked with Leonard’s adjuster to resubmit an MSA to make sure the items he wanted covered would be included. Because Leonard wanted to make sure that he would not have to change providers after settlement, Ametros reached out to his providers directly and made sure they would accept their professional administration service, CareGuard, as form of payment.

Results:

After confirming that everything Leonard needed would be covered and he wouldn’t have to switch his providers, he was on board to settle his case and have it professionally administered to make sure his funds would last as long as possible with Ametros’ discounts.

Value:
