Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) compliance continues to be a complex and frustrating aspect of workers’ compensation claims practice. Wherever you look, there is just no shortage of Medicare problems complicating, or even preventing, claim settlement. Further, CMS’ approaches and policies continue to mystify the workers’ compensation practitioner on many levels, and for many reasons. Navigating the Medicare madness requires an understanding of current Medicare problems and issues – what they are, why they exist, and what solutions may be available to optimize claims settlement and minimize liability. This webinar presents 10 major Medicare issues currently impacting claims and settlement practices, including the following problem areas:
