On February 23, 2024, CMS issued an Alert on the expansion of the Section 111 reporting process to include MSA information in workers’ compensation cases.  The Alert explains that workers’ compensation TPOCs with a TPOC date on or after April 4, 2025, will be subject to the new reporting requirements to include additional fields with MSA information.  The new fields for Claim Input files are fields 37 (MSA Amount), 38 (MSA Period), 39 (Lump Sum or Annuity Payout Indicator), 40 (Initial Deposit Amount), 41 (Anniversary (Annual) Deposit Amount), 42 (Case Control Number), and 43 (Professional Administrator EIN).  The information in these fields must be reported regardless of whether CMS approval was obtained.
