Medicare Compliance in Motor Vehicle Accidents

I am trying to settle a Motor Vehicle Accident case with a knee injury. My client was born 12/02/45 making him more than 62 1/2 years old and Medicare eligible in 30 months or less. Settlement will be less than 100,000. There is a 50% chance of having knee replacement surgery at some point in the future. Treating Ortho says total medical costs in today’s dollars approximately $20,000. The client is eligible for No-Fault medical. Approximately $14,000 left available. What needs to be done as far as Medicare is concerned? Thanks in advance.
