CMS Releases Additional Information Regarding Use of WCMSAP for Prescription Drug Information

We previously posted a blog regarding CMS updating the Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Portal (WCMSAP) which will allow users to directly input prescription drug information and calculate the proposed prescription drug portion of the WCMSA proposal as of October 6, 2014. To read our prior blog, click here.

CMS has released some additional information regarding how this enhancement will work through a presentation posted on its website. To view the presentation, click here. One part of the presentation that was noteworthy to Helios is that this presentation seems to indicate that submitters will be able to obtain prescription pricing information prior to submitting the MSA to CMS. This will be helpful to submitters so that estimates can be obtained and the most accurate pricing information can be utilized at the time the WCMSA is ready to be submitted.

This enhancement is not yet up on the portal, but should be released on October 6, 2014 as indicated by CMS. Once the enhancement is up and running on the portal, we will provide subscribers with more feedback on its functionality.
