Health Care Subrogation

McCormick Law Office pursues subrogation recoveries throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota on behalf of traditional health insurers and multi-employer health and welfare plans established pursuant to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). We represent health insurers and ERISA plans in civil court actions and workers compensation proceedings. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients.

McCormick Law Office is a member of the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP). Attorney Tom McCormick has been a speaker and panelist about ERISA subrogation issues at various seminars and conferences.

"I highly recommend Tom McCormick if you are looking for an attorney to represent your plan in subrogation matters. Not only has Tom done an excellent job recovering money for our Plan for the past 20 years but he also assists us with claims issues, revisions of our subrogation/reimbursement documents and communication with participants and their attorneys. I strongly urge you to contact Tom if you are looking to establish an effective subrogation program."  — Jody Roe-Hardie, Administrator, IBEW 292 Health Care Plan, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Our Clients

Many of the clients with whom we have worked are Taft-Hartley Funds, including current clients IBEW 292 Health Care Plan, Minnesota Teamsters Health & Welfare Plan and Twin City Iron Workers Health and Welfare Fund. We represent the subrogation interests of our clients in both personal injury and workers compensation claims.

Our Proposal to You

We can help your plan establish an effective subrogation program. In order to maximize subrogation recoveries, ERISA plans must have the proper language in their Summary Plan Description (SPD) or plan document.

Our firm has extensive experience preparing subrogation/reimbursement provisions and subrogation agreements. We will explain how an effective subrogation program operates, help you set up a method of identifying claims with subrogation potential and assist you with communications to your members about subrogation issues.

Exceptional Expertise and Experience

In addition to pursuing recoveries on behalf of ERISA plans and health insurers, Tom McCormick has represented plaintiffs and defendants in hundreds of lawsuits during the past 30 years. This experience gives us a unique, practical perspective on subrogation/reimbursement issues.

We Know How to Work with Claims/Subrogation Personnel

Due to our representation of various types of plans and insurers, we have extensive experience dealing with third-party administrators, claim departments and self-administered plans. We understand the issues you face as you try to identify subrogation claims and determine if and when the claims should be paid.

Our Fees

We generally use a contingent fee arrangement with our clients so we only receive payment if there is a recovery on the subrogation claim. However, we are open to discussing other fee arrangements.

We invite you to call 715-386-6542, or to complete our online information form, if we may be of assistance to you in a subrogation matter.
