MSPRC Posts Revised Section 111 Implementation Schedule

The MSPRC has (finally) posted its revised implementation schedule for Section 111 of the Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP Extension Act (“MMSEA”).  Most personal injury attorneys, plaintiff or defense, should pay careful attention to the bottom of page 2.  All recoveries must be reported to the Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor (“MSPRC”) and Coordination of Benefits Contractor (“COBC”) beginning January 1, 2011.

Keep in mind that none of this qualifies as news.  Medicare reporting push backs were announced by the MSPRC more than a month ago.  What does this mean?  Personal injury recoveries where settlement (or a verdict) occurs prior to October 1, 2010 remain discretionary.  The defense need not report settlements to the MSPRC, but may do so.  The new laws are NOT new laws just yet.

Please refer to Marcy Spitz’s post regarding Medicare and mandatory insurance reporting for more information.  Feel free to request lien resolution assistance, or, contact me using any of the methods below.
