The announcement stated:
“Effective October 2015, the CRC will assume responsibility for the recovery of conditional payments where CMS is pursuing recovery directly from a liability insurer (including a self-insured entity), no-fault insurer or workers’ compensation (WC) entity as the identified debtor. The following should be noted regarding the planned workload transition:
• The transition only includes those cases where CMS is pursuing recovery from the liability insurer, nofault insurer or WC entity directly.
• Beneficiaries and their attorneys will continue to work with the BCRC where CMS is pursuing recovery from the beneficiary.”
If you have any questions concerning this transition, feel free to call or email and we will be happy to answer them.
