  • Here the Supreme Court addressed the deadline by which a non-hospital health care provider must perfect its lien to secure payment of its charges. The court of appeals had held that the lien may be perfected within 30 days of the provider’s last treatment. The Supreme Court vacated that decision, holding that under the plain language of the lien statute, A.R.S. § 33-932(A), the lien must be perfected within 30 days after the health care provider first provides services or else the lien is invalid.
