CMS issued an alert today regarding two upcoming webinars to highlight new Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside (WCMSA) Electronic Attestation Enhancements.  The first webinar, which will be held on October 30, 2019, will be for Medicare beneficiaries. The second webinar, will be held on November 6, 2019, and will be for Professional Administrators.  Complete details for the two webinars can be found on CMS’ “What’s New” page here.

For Professional Administrators, the enhancement will be available in the WCMSA portal. While an updated WCMSA portal user guide has yet to be issued, we can expect an updated portal user guide soon which will highlight and provide the specifics regarding this new enhancement. Presumably, this enhancement will enable CMS and Medicare beneficiaries to more clearly track the account balances in a WCMSA.

We be sure to keep our readers updated on any further developments. Please be sure to check back after the webinars for our full summary.
