lien question (California)

Postby 4anewusers on Tue Oct 02, 2018 7:53 am

I have a question about liens from medical providers who have not been charged for a crime however the facility where the service was provided is listed on the list for lien consolidation as owner has been convicted of felony. What happens to the bills from the medical providers who provided services at that facility who bill separately? For example an anesthesiologist who provided his services during a procedure at the facility who bills separately?

If they were a separate business entity - i.e. different tax id number no related in any way to the lien listed for consolidation, they still have standing.

Most of these physicians just rent exam rooms on certain days.

There is a ruling from a Judge supporting this and is in the WorkCompCentral news article today about the younger Drobot's liens being dismissed.
