Secondary Insurance and Clarification of WCMSA Review Thresholds
CMS authored and published a memo for further clarification of common issues and concerns regarding WC MSAs.
This extensive seven page memo includes information about secondary insurance, effect of an MSA on Medicaid eligibility, and a sample submission of a WCMSA.
Some of the questions and answers discussed include:
May WC settlement funds attributable to future medicals be used prior to Medicare entitlement?
Is there a way to avoid the continuation of indemnity payments while awaiting a CMS determination on a proposed WCMSA?
Am I entitled to a release of my WCMSA funds if I lost my Medicare entitlement?
If I disagree with the amount that CMS has determined for my WCMSA, do I have any recourse?
