MSPRC Hosts Webinar about Lien Resolution Process

On November 12, 2009, the Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor (“MSPRC”) hosted a webinar titled, “MSPRC Recovery Process for Liability, No Fault, & Workers Compensation Cases“. The webinar was moderated by Monique Cooper of MSPRC, along with a few words from Barbara Wright, of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The purpose of the webinar was to give attorneys a tutorial of the MSPRC/Medicare Recovery process, and to update attorneys on recent changes in Medicare reporting, the addition of the Proof of Representative requirement, changes to the MSPRC.info website, and a brief summary of the Section 111 Mandatory Reporting guidelines by Barbara Wright. The webinar began with an overview of Medicare’s right of recovery, and a summary of Medicare Secondary Payer and its history. Medicare is secondary to all liability, no fault and workers compensation insurers when there is a compensable illness, injury or condition requiring litigation or a settlement from a liable third party. It continued with a general overview of the MSP process, from reporting to the Coordination of Benefits Contractor and submitting the required Proof of Representation Form,to requesting Conditional Payment Summaries and Final Demand Letters. MSPRC can be contacted by calling 1(866)677-7220 for assistance with Medicare lien resolution.
