How Medicare Compensation Recovery works.
You could get money if someone injures you or makes you ill. We call this compensation.
When your claim reaches settlement or judgment and is more than $5,000 including legal costs, you must repay all care costs relating to your injury or illness.
When you get compensation for an injury or illness, you aren’t eligible to also receive benefits that relate to that injury or illness.
