Strategies to Simplify Medicare Set-Asides
There's no question that workers' compensation and liability Medicare set-asides create headaches for many attorneys. Nonetheless, it is imperative that attorneys know the ins and outs of MSAs, both so they can protect Medicare's interests and secure more advantageous settlements for their clients. Strategies to reduce allocation amounts, knowing how the workers' compensation review contractor reviews settlement proposals, and simply understanding the pros and cons of structured settlements vs. lump sums can all put more money in your client's pocket. Don't miss out on this valuable overview of MSAs - register today!

  • Determine what Medicare's reimbursement rights are when they make a conditional payment on an outstanding medical bill.
  • Effectively protect Medicare's interests, even in cases that do not meet the minimum review thresholds for a WCMSA.
  • Ensure the allocation amount of a WCMSA is not too high by using strategies to reduce future prescription drug costs, future medical costs and more.
  • Avoid lag time when submitting a set-aside to CMS by recognizing submission pitfalls that lead to delays.
  • Calculate whether a lump sum or a structured settlement is more advantageous for funding a workers' compensation Medicare set-aside.
  • Ethically handle settlement funds in a dispute.
