Medical Cost Projections
The MCP with Free MSA for negotiation purposes provides a cost projection that apportions both Medicare allowable and non-Medicare allowable future injury-related medical costs. The cost projection is based on the recommendations made in the current medical records and includes current CMS trends. The Part-D drugs are allocated at the Average Wholesale Price (AWP) per CMS guidelines. The MCP for negotiation purposes, allows the claim’s handler to review the future exposure prior to going into settlement negotiations, obtain authority and settle the case. The Free MSA is provided upon request at no additional charge.
Conditional Payment Investigation and Negotiation
To properly comply with the MSP statute, addressing Conditional Payments should be an integral part of claims handling. Considering the issue early on in the claims process— as opposed to at the time of settlement or worse yet, after settlement— allows time to obtain the necessary information, identify and eliminate costly unrelated claims, and minimize both carrier and Medicare Conditional Payment exposure.
Medical Reserve Accounts
Medical Reserve Accounts reduce the cost and exposure associated with administering the medical component of these unresolved claims by transferring the medical claims processing away from the adjuster to Bridge Pointe.
