It appears that the new WCRC vendor, Provider Resources, Inc., will be taking over the review of all WCMSA submissions beginning July 2, 2012. A message was recently posted to the WCMSAP confirming the following:
Effective July 2, 2012, please contact the WCRC, regarding Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-aside (WCMSA) proposals submitted to CMS for review, at the following toll free: 1-(855) 280-3550. All mailing addresses will remain the same.
The transition over to Provider Resources, Inc. has been underway for some time now and was delayed due to a protest that was filed and ultimately dismissed. PMSI is hopeful that the transition to the new contractor will improve the overall WCMSA review and approval process as well as related turnaround times.
