2012 has been a busy year in the area of MSP compliance and you can be sure that court, state, and CMS interpretations of this complicated law will continue to evolve. If you want to assure you are completely up to date on this year’s new MSP case law, liability requirements and MSP trends, plan to attend PMSI’s 2012 legal update webinar! The webinar will not only ensure you are up to date on the latest happenings in the area of MSP compliance, but will clarify and fully explain new case law and how it may impact claim settlements. Highlights from the webinar include:
2012 MSP Case Law
- Bruton v. Carnival Corp., wherein a Florida court found that although the settlement documents spoke to compliance with the MSP, because an MSA was not specifically mentioned, it was not required. I will discuss how settlement documents are key in ensuring MSP compliance.
- Oregon State Bar Prof. Liability Fund v. DHHS, an attorney legal malpractice insurer sought a court’s opinion as to whether it is an RRE under the MMSEA and required to report claims information to Medicare. Will more entities seek exemption from reporting under the MMSEA from the courts in the future?
Conditional Payment Update
- A recent Third Circuit Case as well as a recent CMS memorandum provides Medicare Advantage Plans with the same rights of recovery as traditional Medicare and also allows for a private cause of action for double damages if conditional payments are not reimbursed! I will explain how this update may affect settlements and how you can protect yourself from this private cause of action.
CMS liability updates
- CMS attempts to formalize rules surrounding the MSP and future medicals. Will LMSAs or another form of allocation be required in the near future?
- A WCMSA bill seeks to exempt all workers’ compensation settlements under $25,000 from any compliance with the MSP. Will this bill pass?
Heather Schwartz, Esq., MSCC, CHPE, CLMP, CMSP will offer her expertise in reference to the above topics on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 from 1 PM -2 PM EDT.
