How can I preserve my Medicare coverage after a settlement?

In individual cases, the money you personally receive after paying any lien generally should not affect your eligibility for Social Security Disability Income and Medicare. However, you should discuss with your attorney whether funds might need to be set aside for your future medical treatment. Ask your attorney whether a Medicare Set Aside or MSA is appropriate. Medicare Set Asides are explained more fully on our website. Keep in mind that they are especially important in workers’ compensation cases.
