CMS WC MSA UDPATE

CMS has posted the following WC MSA Update: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/workerscompagencyservices/01_overview.asp?

March 23, 2010

The CMS is moving forward with the development of the Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Portal (WCMSAP). As you know, the WCMSAP will allow for the electronic submission of WCMSA proposals for future medical and future prescription drug costs on a more expedited basis. With the introduction of the WCMSAP web portal, scheduled for the first quarter of 2011, WCMSA submitters will receive a real-time acknowledgement of their proposal submissions. Rest assured that comprehensive educational material will be provided on this website for all interested parties before the implementation of the WCMSAP. Keep checking back for updates that will be coming from CMS about the WCMSA Web Portal.

TESTIMONIALS

"Coincidentally, on the day of a recent Synergy Seminar on Medicare & ERISA lien resolution I received a letter on an ERISA lien. This letter followed much back and forth between myself and the recovery vendor for BCBS. Despite my efforts they were adamant there would be no (zero)(zilch)(nada) reduction and provided case law to support their position. I tried Synergy’s Lien Resolution Services since I had just heard their Director of Lien Resolution speak. Synergy got them to reduce their claim by a third in less than ten (10) days. The result was quick and the fee very reasonable. If you have a tough ERISA lien and your typical efforts don’t work, give Synergy a try."

I wanted to pass my highest recommendation to Synergy who we routinely get involved in cases when Medicare issues come up, especially when dealing with Medicare Set Asides. Synergy went beyond the call of duty in a recent case that was settled and dealt one-on-one with our clients and their family. They spent time on the phone with them to be sure they got all their questions answered and did a fantastic job dealing with Medicare.
