CMS has updated the Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Portal (MSPRP) to no longer require a case ID to retrieve and request conditional payment information. CMS has not yet issued an official alert to this effect, however CMS has provided PMSI with the following statement: “By adding the Date of Incident (DOI) field to the New Case Request page, the user will have an option of entering either the ReMAS Case ID or DOI. The beneficiary HICN or SSN, beneficiary last name and beneficiary date of birth will still be required.”
PMSI is extremely pleased with this update from CMS as it will allow users to have greater access to using the portal without the need for a Case ID. This will assist settling parties in expediting the conditional payment verification and review process.
