One Step Ahead


Makes a difference


What differentiates FW’s Medicare Group from our competitors is our mastery of the relevant compliance law and our end-to-end approach to Medicare claims and issues. Our compliance team brings a collective thirty-plus years of “in-the-trenches” litigation experience. We have handled thousands of complex and traumatic injury cases in state and federal courts around the country. Therefore, every claim involving a compliance issue is analyzed through the prism of applicable compliance regulations and the strategic considerations of the litigation as a whole.

Lori Wirkus Leads the Medicare compliance team

Lori Wirkus

Lori has become known for her innovative, funny, and enlightening presentations.

She doesn't just regurgitate case law updates but focuses on changing behavior and thinking strategically about MSP compliance issues.

Lori consults on both standard and complex Medicare compliance matters with insurance carriers, businesses, and law firms around the country. As an experienced litigator, she has more than 20 years of experience handling everything from the classic slip and fall cases to multi-fatality/catastrophic injury claims. Accordingly, she is not looking at Medicare issues in a vacuum but rather as a piece in a much larger litigation puzzle.
