MMSEA SECTION 111 – A LUMP OF COAL FOR CHRISTMAS

Medicare Set-Aside Blog on June 26, 2009 | Posted by

While
recently trying to find out why there was not more uproar in the insurance
industry regarding the Section 111 reporting requirement when the MMSEA of 2007
was proposed to Congress, we found that perhaps it was because no one probably
even knew what was coming. Note to would be lobbyists: If you ever want to
sneak something through the legislature, do so right before the Christmas
break. Take a look at this time line…who says our government can’t get anything
done?
