The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a notice announcing that it will be holding a Non-Group Health Plan (NGHP) Beneficiary Recovery Process webinar on December 9, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. ET. As more fully described in CMS’s notice, the primary intended audience is “attorneys who represent beneficiaries and other beneficiary representatives.”

In this regard, CMS’s notice describes the focus areas for this upcoming event as follows:

CMS will be hosting a webinar focused upon the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) recovery process when a Medicare beneficiary receives a settlement, judgment, award, or other payment. The primary intended audience is attorneys who represent beneficiaries and other beneficiary representatives.

The BCRC will present a refresher on the beneficiary recovery process, including what functions can be facilitated using the Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Portal (MSPRP). Such functions include submission of authorizations, requesting a Final Conditional Payment, and electronic payments.

The webinar will also discuss alternative demand calculation options (Self-Calculated Conditional Payment Amount and Fixed Percentage Option), as well as other beneficiary recovery tips and best practices. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session with participants.

To submit questions in advance for this webinar, please send them to COBR-NGHP- Comments@cms.hhs.gov. Questions must be submitted no later than Monday, November 30, 2020.
