The latest litigation continues a trend by Medicare Advantage Plans (MAPs) to establish their rights of recovery.  Specifically, MAPs are now aggressively seeking the right to recover double damages against Plaintiff attorneys, in addition to their pursuit of primary plans, for failure to reimburse.

While primary plans have been the traditional target, there have been several lawsuits against Plaintiff attorneys.  These lawsuits have involved United Healthcare, Aetna, and Humana.  Just recently, Humana filed two more actions, one in Florida and one in Louisiana.  In each case, Humana alleges that it put the attorneys on notice and that its lien was ignored.
