By Mark Popolizio  |  January 14, 2015

It has been roughly seven years since the Section 111 reporting requirements were enacted into law. During this time, the industry has witnessed and worked through numerous changes, updates, and challenges as part of CMS’ Mandatory Insurer Reporting directives.

In keeping with this history, 2015 harbors some important changes that will directly impact RREs and their Section 111 compliance obligations. Thus, as we enter a new year, it is a perfect time for a Section 111 “level set.”
