The Medicare Secondary Payer act (MSP) was enacted on December 5, 1980. Despite being federal law for over thirty-five years, many liability attorneys still struggle with ensuring their settlements fully comply with the statute’s three basic requirements: ensure Medicare remains secondary to settlement proceeds, reimburse Medicare’s conditional payment, and report the settlement via the Section 111 reporting requirement.
This CLE will provide an overview of the MSP statute and then provide a detailed examination into each of the three statutory requirements. Specifically, this program will outline when a future medical allocation is appropriate, how to obtain and dispute Medicare’s conditional payment amount, and when the defendant is required to file a Section 111 report. Time permitting, the course will also provide practice tips for case management and settlement language.
Questions are encouraged throughout the presentation.
