Medicare Puts Hold on All Final Demands

As some of you have already learned, the MSPRC has put a hold on the issuance of ALL final demands for Medicare cases.  This means you will not be able to close out Medicare lien files for a period of time.  MSPRC representatives have confirmed the hold is temporary, but it is also indefinite.  They have not offered any amount of time for this stay and would not confirm whether it is “short term” or “long term.” In addition to the time frame, we have learned that this began sometime in the first ten days of May.

We have left messages for high-ranking MSPRC and CMS representatives so that we may gather additional facts regarding this stay.  As soon as we know more information, we will share it. Based on what we have been told so far, “revisions” in the language of the Demand Letter are expected.  Unfortunately, we do not know what those changes will entail.

While this may be a hindrance on your cases and cash flow we are hopeful that the revisions are beneficial to the lien process and some good can come from this nuisance. While your first thought may be to file injunctions against the MSPRC, we believe this would cause more harm than good – at least before we know more.  Please be patient.
