Government shutdown – MSP update

As the partial government shutdown continues, questions are being raised as to the shutdown’s impact on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) activities concerning Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) compliance.

According to ISO Claims Partners’ research and sources, the partial government shutdown is not expected to impact MSP contractor operations as CMS, the Commercial Repayment Center (CRC), the Benefits Coordination and Recovery Center (BCRC), and Workers’ Compensation Review Center (WCRC) are funded for the fiscal year. If this status should change for whatever reason, we will update as necessary.
