CMS to hold town hall call on November 17

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.

CMS noted that it expects to discuss:

Will Cms Expand Msa Reviews To Liability Cases And Other Claims?

  • Ongoing Responsibility for Medicals (ORM) recovery
  • Final conditional payment 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.

We will participate in the town hall and provide a summary following the event.
