Matthiesen, Wickert & Lehrer, S.C. (MWL) specializes in ERISA and health insurance subrogation. In addition to counseling group health providers and plan administrators on plan and policy language, MWL expertly applies favorable plan subrogation language and federal law under ERISA, where applicable, to maximize subrogation and reimbursement of medical and disability benefits where the need arises at an absolute minimal cost.
MWL wrote the book on ERISA and Health Insurance Subrogation! We are the authors of ERISA and Health Insurance Subrogation In All 50 States, published by Juris Publishing, Inc., New York, the best-selling and only national treatise used by health insurance professionals and practitioners throughout the country. Our attorneys routinely advise insurers and plan administrators on plan and policy design in order to maximize benefit recovery and minimize future benefit liabilities.
MWL attorneys work with adjusters and plan administrators from the outset of a subrogation claim to the conclusion. Our focus is to resolve every claim without litigation, but when negotiations break down our attorneys are experienced litigators. MWL have successfully represented ERISA plans in federal courts throughout the country in litigation involving subrogation and reimbursement. Our attorneys routinely seek injunctions to prevent beneficiary’s counsel from disposing of settlement funds and orders tracing funds to bank accounts and trusts. Our attorneys are admitted to numerous federal courts, circuit courts, and court of appeals throughout the country and have represented subrogation clients in all 50 states. Our attorneys have also appeared before state legislatures and on television and radio programs defending your subrogation rights.
