The South Carolina Bar CLE Division will be presenting a unique seminar designed to comprehensively address the subrogation and reimbursement issues that arise in resolving claims for injured persons. As seminar planner and member of the faculty, I invite you to consider attending the seminar either in person or via webcast.

My fellow South Carolinian, Rob Hoskins, Esq. (legal counsel to the petitioner in LaRue v. DeWolff, Boberg) will be addressing ERISA issues from the participant’s perspective while I will address the subject from the plan fiduciary’s perspective. In addition, we have talented and experienced attorneys who will address lien issues involving Medicaid and workers’ compensation, a review of ethical obligations and a panel discussion that will take up “real life” situations.

From the seminar advance notice:

The various sources of law and the different entities asserting claims for reimbursement from settlement funds create a patchwork of obligations that must be addressed during and after settlement of the primary case. Recent case law from the United States Supreme Court, such as Sereboff v. Mid Atlantic, Arkansas Department of Health and Human Services v. Ahlborn, and cases now pending before the Court, continue to change the rules of the game. This seminar offers the trial bar as well as benefit plan administrators an opportunity to gain a unique insight into what must be done now to prepare and cope with these changes. In addition, Steedley Bogan will be present to supply the information you need to know about ethical implications in resolving reimbursement claims.
