Complying with the Medicare Secondary Payer Act in Liability Cases

For years, many assumed that Medicare Secondary Payer issues only applied in the workers’ compensation context. Within the past year, however, some significant developments have occurred that counter that assumption. CMS issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking indicating that Medicare intends to establish guidance for handling future medicals in liability as well as workers’ compensation cases. CMS also issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking with regard to the imposition of Section 111 penalties. Both of those are expected to be finalized this year. In addition, more aggressive recovery efforts by CMS, Medicare Advantage Plans and Prescription Drug Plans have been targeted at the liability industry, not just workers’ compensation. With that in mind, we wanted to provide some guidelines for liability clients with regard to when the Medicare Secondary Payer Act applies and what actions are needed to ensure compliance. During this webinar, attorney Melisa C. Zwilling will discuss these issues and more.
