Illinois law provides that in order to be a valid lien notice, the lien needs to be served on the injured party and the party against whom the claim or right of action exists. Additionally, the lien notice must include certain information. The lien must contain the name and address of the health care facility, the date of the injury and name and address of the patient.
Once there is a valid lien the health care facility has the right to be reimbursed from the claim. However, there is a limitation to the how much the health care providers are entitled to from the possible award. If the total amount of liens from health care providers is equivalent to or exceeds 40% of the settlement or verdict, then the total liens from the health care providers is limited to 20% of the funds.
