The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issued an alert today that it will be hosting two town hall meetings to discuss common Commercial Repayment Center (CRC) Non-Group Health Plan (NGHP) Ongoing Responsibility for Medicals (ORM) and Group Health Plan (GHP) recovery topics. The first town hall will be held on January 14, 2020 at 1:00 PM EST and will focus on CRC NGHP ORM recovery topics. The second town hall, to be held on January 14, 2020, at 3:00 PM EST will focus on CRC GHP recovery topics. Complete details for the two webinars are available here.

This alert comes on the heels of the proposed rulemaking due date for civil money penalty provisions for Medicare Secondary Payer reporting being delayed once again, as discussed here recently on our blog.  With the date for the proposed rulemaking pushed out to December, perhaps we will have some additional insight into the status of the rule by these January townhall meetings.  We will be sure to update our readers on any further developments.
