NAMSAP Issues Position Letter

Medicare Set-Aside Blog on July 15, 2008 | Posted by

Earlier this month, the National Alliance for Medicare Set-Aside Professionals (NAMSAP) issued a position letter addressing some of the glaring problems with the CMS review protocol for Medicare Set-Aside Allocations (MSAs). MEDVAL supports the attempts of NAMSAP to gain an audience with CMS. In our experience, every issue raised in the letter is well documented and in dire need of redress. By virtue of its contractor, the WCRC, CMS has overstepped its legal authority and is violating both the letter and the spirit of the Medicare Secondary Payer Statute.

If CMS will not follow its own rules voluntarily, then perhaps it is time for litigation to force a resolution. Hopefully, CMS will heed this call to action and do the right thing.
