Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Portal (WCMSAP) Initiative Moving Forward To Open Production Phase
During the weekly meeting of the Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Portal (WCMSAP) “pilot testers”, it was announced that the WCMSAP initiative will be moving forward to open production phase very shortly.
The WCMSAP is a web based application that allows submitters to directly enter case information, upload medical records and other necessary documentation, and check on the status and progress of a case. CMS has indicated that they anticipate this initiative will significantly improve the submission and review process for WCMSAs. Once open production phase officially begins, CMS will post registration instructions on its website allowing all submitters to register and begin to utilize the WCMSAP.
