How do I file a medical lien?

October 30, 2017

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.
