    I just received the deed of release for a claim I have made against a surgeon for performing the wrong surgery on me. If I understand correctly, because my settlement is over $5K, I have to pay Medicare back for the services that were provided. Should I have included this amount in my claim?

    Most likely. Has your lawyer reviewed the deed of release?
