MSPRC Offers Process & Timeline Webinar

On April 14, 2010 the Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor (MSPRC) will provide a webinar regarding its current practices, policies, and timeframes.  The Webinar is schedule for 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.

The MSPRC stated schedule for the webinar reads:

New changes have been made to the MSPRC Conditional Payment and Demand Process. This Town Hall Meeting will provide education on the New Conditional Payment Notice and Process, as well as updates on:

    • The MSPRC Recovery Process & Timelines
    • The Rights and Responsibilities Letter
    • Proof of Representation vs. Consent to Release
    • What’s new with the MSPRC

Most of the Medicare lien procedures on this schedule have been in place for some time.  Nonetheless, it is always good to familiarize yourself with Medicare’s policies to avoid distribution delays.

  1. […] How to Read Conditional Payment Letters By Ryan J. Weiner The MSPRC timeframe for a Conditional Payment Letter is approximately 80 days after reporting to the COBC.  But remember, the MSPRC can change this timeframe whenever it sees fit, and may do so next week, during a MSPRC Webinar. […]

  2. what recourse is there if after 65 days you do not have an amount is there any thing to be done about it?

    • Russ,

      Unfortunately there is no recourse beyond calling the MSPRC at (866-677-7220). There are two reasons why you would not receive the amount in the timeframe. First, you do not have appropriate consent from your client (however, your client will receive the full payment letter if his mailing address is the same that Medicare has on file). Second, you may not receive the amount because the MSPRC has made a mistake. My best advice here is to call the MSPRC and ask the status. The representative should be able to give you some information and maybe even “expedite” a new request. Does this answer your question?
