May 10 Non-Submitted MSAs and CMS – Impact of WCMSA Reference Guide Section 4.3
Section 4.3 of Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Reference Guide regarding the use of Non-Submits has been a source of much confusion. We will break down the original text, needed revisions, and the interplay between the statute and regulations. Join us for this can’t miss session.


May 17 Conditional Payments: Typical Conditional Payment Issues
The conditional payment process can cause unwanted additional expenses and can force parties to make payment for medical expenses that otherwise would not require reimbursement. We will discuss the usual appeal process, reopen requests and waiver requests, and when each option may be available.


May 24 Section 111 Reporting
With Civil Money Penalties in the process of being finalized, taking control of your Section 111 Reporting is now more imperative than ever. We will review what is needed to create a compliant program and how to identify gaps in your reporting process.

Structured Settlements
Utilizing Structured Settlement annuities can be beneficial to both sides in a settlement. This webinar will focus on when and how you can use structures and what the WMSA Reference Guide directs regarding them.


June 7 Legal Tools: Orders, Statutes, and More
Each case is unique. And your compliance program should have the tools to help you address each one. This webinar will focus on some of the less well known MSP resolution options.


June 14 What’s New with CMS
Keeping up with CMS can be a challenge. Join us as we review recent developments and changes with CMS. We will tackle popular topics such as Civil Money Penalties, possible rules for liability MSAs, and non-submit MSAs.


June 21 Conditional Payments: Premise Liability and Auto
Premise liability, Med Pay, PIP, and Auto No-Fault policies may require a carrier/self-insured to report Ongoing Responsibility for Medical (ORM), Total Payment Obligation to Claimant (TPOC), or Settlement (if a Medicare beneficiary is involved). We will cover issues surrounding these circumstances as they relate to Medicare conditional payments such as policy exhaustion, Section 111 Reporting, and defending reimbursement requests in excess of policy limits.


June 28 Conditional Payments: Re-Open Process
Medicare’s federal regulations allow a debtor to request Medicare revise its initial determination or redetermination within one year for any reason, within four years for good cause, and at any time for clerical error. We will discuss the use of these requests and the relief Medicare is providing in response.


July 5 The PAID Act Revisited
With greater data, comes greater responsibility! We will refresh our understanding of the Provide Accurate Information Directly (PAID) Act and Medicare Advantage Plan/Part C and Part D plan information. We will also revisit the impact and timing of Civil Money Penalties on Responsible Reporting Entities (RREs).
