The stakes are high when dealing with Medicare conditional payments. With the right advocate, you can save money, mitigate exposure, and ensure resolution of claims. As an industry leader, ISO Claims Partners is uniquely positioned to ensure proper compliance with CMS’s Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) contractors for all lines of business while also delivering maximum cost and time savings.
With Section 111 reporting, you’re already sending Medicare all the data it needs to seek recovery on conditional payments. Now you can put that same data to work for you. Addressing Medicare exposure programmatically and taking a more active role in defending against inappropriate recovery claims are what CP Link is all about.
ISO continues to provide coverage and pricing tools to help insurers respond to the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA). The federal Terrorism Risk Insurance Program (TRIP), a program established by TRIA, was scheduled to terminate at the end of December 31, 2005.
ISO Claims Partners Legal Zero is a set of services that can help you reduce the cost of individual Medicare Set-Asides (MSAs) to $0 in appropriate cases. To get the most favorable agreement with Medicare on an MSA, you need to consider both medical and legal issues involved in the underlying claim. Why should you allocate money for future medical treatment when you aren’t the primary payer? Why increase the cost of a settlement when you’re dealing with a denied or disputed claim? Why abandon state law defenses just because the case involves Medicare?
The Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) statute charged the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) with protecting Medicare’s “future interests,” and CMS identified Medicare Set-Asides (MSAs) as the preferred way to allocate payment for future treatment. In 2006, ISO Claims Partners developed an exceptional approach that revolutionized the MSA industry. Combining medical and legal advocacy on every claim, our MSA Allocation Services save our clients significant time and money.
