CMS to Hold Town Hall Call on November 17

By Mark Popolizio November 10, 2016

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will conduct a Town Hall Teleconference November 17, 2016 (1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. EST) to address numerous liability insurance (including self-insurance), workers' compensation, and no-fault claims issues.  Click here to view CMS’s full notice and call-in instructions.

CMS noted that it expects to discuss:

  • Ongoing Responsibility for Medicals (ORM) recovery
  • Final Conditional Payment (CP) process reminders
  • Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Portal (MSPRP) improvements

Liability Medicare Set-Asides (LMSAs) were noticeably absent from the preliminary agenda.  In June, CMS announced plans to revisit the LMSA issue and indicated it would hold a series of Town Hall calls before the end of the year. It is unclear whether CMS will discuss LMSAs or accept questions about LMSAs at this event.  For more information on CMS’s earlier LMSA-related releases, click here.

ISO Claims Partners will participate in the Town Hall and provide a summary following the event.
