Updated Medical Lien packet now available

GLP Attorneys is excited to announce that we have updated our Medical Lien packet with the recent changes to House Bill 1503! 

What this means for healthcare providers:

The applicable changes take place 90 days after the end of session, or July 23, 2015. By that date, healthcare providers that use medical liens will need to:

  • Disclose the use of medical liens as part of your billing and collection practices.
  • Within thirty days after payment or settlement of the balance held against the lien, prepare, sign, and deliver a Satisfaction of Lien to your patient.

A copy of the final HB 1503 that was submitted to Governor Inslee and signed into law is available here: House Bill 1503
