Do I need to do anything once the lien has been paid?

October 30, 2017

Once the claim is settled, as a provider, you need to file a “Satisfaction of Lien” no more than 30 days after you’ve received payment.  If patient files a lawsuit to compel the provider to file the satisfaction, the provider is on the hook for the costs of the lawsuit, reasonable attorney fees, and any other damages.
