Section 111 Mandatory Insurer Reporting is on everyone’s mind these days. New Non-Group Health Plan User Guides seem to be coming out more frequently, Civil Monetary Penalties are anticipated in 2024 and what is an “Unsolicited Response File” anyway? Join us as we explore all things Section 111.

Key takeaways:

    • Discuss the information provided by CMS regarding Unsolicited Response Files during their townhall meeting on June 6 and explore any potential impacts on claim handling and settlement.
    • Examine changes to version 7.2 of the NGHP User Guide (released in June) and get a refresher on all Section 111 activities since the extension of the deadline for a ruling on Civil Monetary Penalties.

That’s a Wrap: Finalizing the Settlement
Just getting to settlement on cases involving Medicare considerations can be challenging enough, but that is only one piece of the puzzle.

    • Discover how “post settlement” discussions and processes (like CMS submission, funding, and administration) can hold up final resolution of a case.
    • Discuss processes for CMS submission, funding, and administration, identify potential pain points, and review potential solutions.

Plot Twist: Considering Medicare’s Interests in Liability Settlements
Who Saw That Coming? While Medicare Secondary Payer for Workers’ Compensation has some structure to it (i.e., WCMSA Reference Guide), parties often find it more challenging to consider Medicare’s interests in liability settlements. This webinar will provide an overview of the various aspects of Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) compliance as related to liability cases. We will also discuss Section 111 Mandatory Insurer Reporting and Conditional Payments for liability cases and how they may require more cooperation between the settling parties. Will we walk through Reporting and Lien Resolution on liability cases and review the importance of the settling parties’ agreement on the MSP pieces of the settlement.
Key takeaways:

    • Explore how considering Medicare’s interest in liability settlements differs from workers’ compensation cases and how that may broaden your options for resolution.
    • Discuss possible options for resolution.
    • Gain a better understanding of the importance of achieving agreement on the MSP related components of the settlement.

  • Review your pre- and post-allocation mitigation options for the lowest defensible allocation.

Finding the Right Talent: Establishing Medicare & Social Security Status
Determining whether a Medicare Set-Aside is appropriate is often linked to a claimant’s entitlement status.

Key takeaways:

    • Learn basic information about Social Security Disability and Medicare entitlement and the impact a beneficiary’s status can have on determining whether to request a Medicare Set-Aside.
