How do I file a medical lien?
All medical liens must be filed within 20 days of providing care at your county auditor’s office. The lien is filed by the provider, and is $74.00 per lien with a $1.00 charge for each “conformed”, or complete copy. The conformed copy can be used to make additional copies. It’s best to forward a copy to everyone involved with the claim (patient, insurers, attorneys, etc.). Keep in mind that the lien must be re-filed every year until payment is received from patient’s settlement.
