MSPRC Website: Liability Medicare Set-Asides are NOT Required

Direct from the horse’s mouth (but I can’t take credit – thanks to the NAMSAP Listserv for this catch:

This image is from MSPRC.info – the website of Medicare’s agent.  It is just another argument that LMSAs are simply not required and cannot be required for Medicare liens.  The FAQ portion of the website lists the question:

“Does Medicare require a set-aside agreement for a liability case?”

And the answer:

“No. At present, set-aside agreement apply only to Workers Compensation cases.”
