Light Bulb Button by SRTK Law Thought of the Day

If a lien claimant is convicted (including guilty plea) of insurance fraud, the lien claimant must go through the lien consolidation process.

  1. The purpose of the lien consolidation process is to identify all liens filed by the convicted provider that were directly related to the fraud.
  2. This process has its own discovery process and generally is a very slow process.
  3. Once the consolidation process is complete, the Special Lien Adjudication Unit is given jurisdiction over the liens identified as being related to the fraud (likely leading to dismissals of all implicated liens).
  4. Thus far, only two consolidation proceedings have been completed (Dr. Mitchell Cohen and chiropractor George Reese).
