The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a notice announcing that it will be holding a Benefits Coordination & Recovery Center (BCRC) and Commercial Repayment Center (CRC) Non-Group Health Plan (NGHP) town hall on April 1, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. ET.
Per CMS’s notice, this town hall will “discuss common NGHP topics” and indicates that the panel will entertain questions regarding Section 111 reporting and NGHP recovery issues.
CMS’s notice states as follows:
CMS will be hosting a town hall to discuss common NGHP topics. During this town hall, staff from CMS, the BCRC and the CRC will all be on hand to answer your NGHP related questions. Whether you have questions about Section 111 reporting or about NGHP recovery, this town hall will be beneficial. Questions for this town hall can be submitted in advance to COBR-NGHP-Comments@cms.hhs.gov. Please have your questions submitted no later than March 25, 2021.
As will be noted above, CMS has not provided a specific agenda for this event. Thus, it will be interesting to learn which topics the panel discusses and which issues are raised from participant questions.
While the author has no special insight regarding what may be discussed, some topics of likely interest may include recent Section 111 NGHP User Guide updates and any number of current NGHP recovery issues such as post-settlement (TPOC) beneficiary recovery. It will also be interesting to see if any information is provided regarding CMS’s Section 111 civil money penalties or the agency’s plans for PAID Act implementation.
If you are interested in attending CMS’s town hall, please see CMS’s notice for further details and webinar registration information.
ISO Claims Partners will be attending the webinar and will post a summary blog article following this event. In the interim, please do not hesitate to contact the author if you have any questions.
