Update on the CMSP Designation

Medicare Set-Aside Blog on July 1, 2010 | Posted by

See new website http://www.lasie.org/CMSP/ or http://www.cmspprogram.org/

Although it isn’t going to win any awards for style or accurate content, the website at least addresses some of the concerns raised in my prior post. Specifically, there is a larger credentialing organization, a plan to require pre-requisites (although that page was still under construction as of this writing) and an acknowledgement that this designation was an attempt to address MSP considerations beyond MSAs.

If I was spending $700 for a course, I would take John Cambell’s MSCC program first. His course covers all the “new” topics presented by the CMSP faculty and he is a recognized expert in the field of MSP compliance. His training comes without the soft sell or conflict of interest found in vendor sponsored courses.

I will be interested to see if the industry embraces this course over the long-term.
