CMS has issued an alert notifying the industry of a reorganization of the MSP sections of its website. There appears to be no substantive changes to the MSP program, but rather what appears to be an ongoing reorganization and consolidation of information.
Below is the text of the alert:
The Coordination of Benefits and Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery sections on the Medicare tab of the CMS.Gov Web Site have been redesigned and restructured. As part of this restructuring, all pertinent information from the MSPRC.info web site has been incorporated into this new design and web page links have changed. Please visit the Coordination of Benefits & Recovery section of CMS.gov to see our new web pages.
CMS provides the ability for you to be automatically notified when changes are made to the Coordination of Benefits & Recovery Overview web pages. If you have not already signed up for these notifications, please click the Subscription Sign-up Notification link found in the Related Links section of the web pages. When new information regarding Coordination of Benefits & Recovery are available, you will be notified. These announcements will also be posted to the What’s New page of the corresponding web pages.
The following short-cuts have also been created for each of the new web pages:
