On August 3, 2011 the GAOGovernment Accountability Office dismissed the protest filed by Data and Analytics Solutions, Inc. in reference to the WCRCWorkers’ Compensation Review Contractor contract awarded to Provider Resources, Inc. effective July 1, 2011. Data and Analytics Solutions, Inc. had filed a bid for the WCRCWorkers’ Compensation Review Contractor contract and was not chosen. They filed the protest alleging that the agency’s review process was flawed. The GAOGovernment Accountability Office was given a deadline of October 13, 2011 to render a decision in reference to the protest. The MSAMedicare Set-Aside industry is pleasantly surprised by such a quick decision by the GAOGovernment Accountability Office; the swift decision is welcome news so that the transition to the new WCRCWorkers’ Compensation Review Contractor provider can take place.
The transition of the WCMSAWorkers' Compensation Medicare Set-Aside review process from Lifecare Management Partners to Provider Resources, Inc. will soon commence. The industry is waiting to see whether the transition to a new contractor will improve the overall review and approval process and related turnaround times.
