News - Status NECC Bankruptcy
Foley & Small has completed submission of claims forms for its more than 80 clients who were injured as result of receiving contaminated epidural injections manufactured and distributed by the New England Compounding Center. In a status conference held before the federal district court in Boston the week of November 9, it was reported that the claims administrator anticipated sending out initial point determination letters to claimants before year-end.
It is also anticipated that initial payments will be forthcoming during the early months of 2016. Foley & Small is working with the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee to move forward on lien resolutions with Medicare and with private insurance carriers. This effort includes reaching out to those in Congress in the U.S. Senate seeking assistance in resolving the Medicare liens through its CMS administrative offices.
