Medicare Endgame – Applying Predictive Settlement Strategies to Mitigate MSP Exposure.
Presented By: DRI's Workers' Compensation Committee
Of the many solutions that may exist in the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) compliance universe, very few offer the certainty and predictability parties crave. Very few allow the insurance carrier/self-insured to calculate its MSP exposure with absolute certainty. Very few allow the Medicare beneficiary to calculate a potential net award with absolute certainty. Very few allow the file of each respective side to stay closed permanently. John V. Cattie, Jr. and Bruce A. Cranner, expert legal scholars, will walk attendees through the process of using an arbitration (as opposed to mediation) to obtain a judicial allocation on the merits which can be used to address MSP reimbursement obligations, as well as how to protect Medicare’s interests when closing the file through adjudication on the merits before the Board/Industrial Commission.
