Do You Have Any Workers' Comp Liens? If so, you need to find out how Senate Bill 1160 will affect them - and you.
SB 1160 has the potential to wipe out the value of your liens PLUS the extra $100 or $150 fee you paid!
Soon, Governor Brown will sign Senate Bill 1160, a comprehensive anti-fraud bill, which will dramatically affect all current and future workers’ comp liens. If you fail to take appropriate action in a timely manner, your liens will vanish by operation of law on July 1, 2017.
1.2 million current liens, worth nearly $11 billion, will be affected by this new law – yours are among them! It will also affect your ability to file new liens in the future.
This legislation is not limited to situations where the provider “treated on a lien.” It affects any situation when a lien becomes the only means to collect what is owed.
As a result of “breach of duty liens,”- liens made necessary because claims administrators do not comply with their obligations - this new law will affect every provider, physicians as well as non-physicians, whether or not you currently file liens.
- How many liens do you have?
- What are they worth and how much have you already invested to collect them?
- Can you afford to lose them and the activation/filing fees you already paid?
