Ninth Circuit Court Upholds California's SB 863 Requirement For Lien Holders To Pay $100 Activation Fee
By Courthouse News Service - June 30, 2015

The Ninth Circuit upheld California's requirement Monday that holders of workers' compensation liens pay a $100 activation fee to keep their legacy liens alive.

Signed into law in 2012, California passed Senate Bill 863 to combat an acute "lien crisis" in the state's workers' compensation system.

Health care providers have the right to file liens for payment of their services against an award made in favor of an injured worker. Even if the injured worker does not prevail in a workers' compensation case, medical-legal lien claimants can still obtain payment as long as the expenses are proven credible and valid.
