Therre is nothing more we can do here. You have a lawyer. Your lawyer has given you his professional opinion. No one here can force Medicare to act quicker.

No one here will disagree that it is frustrating to deal with medicare when trying to resolve lien issues. Don't forget, your attorney doesn't get paid until you do, so to speak. There is no incentive for him/her to want to let things lay still if there is another alternative. Speak to your laywer to keep up to date.



but not being on medicare until 2 years after are they able to take my settlement money from me?


I have NEVER received a "Demand for Payment" letter in as little as 3 months. Give it another 60 days. All correspondence from CMS is to you. It is only cc'd to your attorney so you know exactly what is going on.
