Interpleader and Subro
I need to settle a case for less than medicals, or even Tricare lien. If I interplead rather than seek Tricare reduction, what happens if Tricare does not show up to interpleader? Can I distribute remaining funds to client after my fee?
Answer: Don’t do this. Work with Tricare. Tri-Care won’t show up (it’s actually the JAG office of the service effected, followed by the U.S. Attorneys office) at the interpleader. They will, however, pursue you to the grave.
