CMS has announced that a webinar regarding the upcoming changes to the Non-Group Health Plan (NGHP) Recovery Process and Workload will be presented on August 25, 2015 at 2:00 pm EST.

As noted in prior posts, effective October 2015, the Commercial Repayment Center (CRC) will assume the responsibility for conditional payment recovery activities in all situations where CMS is pursuing recovery directly from certain NGHPs including workers’ compensation entities, liability insurers (including self-insured entities) and no-fault insurers. The BCRC will continue to handle all cases where CMS is pursuing recovery directly from the beneficiary.

CMS has indicated that this workload transition is part of their continuing efforts to improve the Coordination of Benefits and Recovery (COB&R) program as well as enhance claims payment accuracy.

Registration will be available, 15 minutes prior to the start of the webinar, at the following link: https://event.webcasts.com/starthere.jsp?ei=1071085
