MSPRC Announces Electronic Submission Portal

The Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor (MSPRC) has announced plans to implement a web-based electronic submission portal.

The MSPRC is launching a pilot program to test their new portal in the upcoming months with a projected “go live” date in July, 2012. This portal will facilitate and expedite the conditional payment process for Liability Insurance, No-Fault Insurance, and Workers’ Compensation cases. In addition, it will enable adjusters to electronically submit their Authorizations and Consent to Release documentation, request conditional payment information, negotiate unrelated items from the conditional payment worksheet, and provide settlement information to release the conditional payment demand.   Click on this link to view the announcement from the MSPRC website directly:  http://www.msprc.info/

Fixed Percentage Recovery Option Available in Certain Liability Settlements

The MSPRC has implemented a new fixed percentage recovery option that will be available to certain beneficiaries effective November 7, 2011.

The “Fixed Percentage Option” gives beneficiaries who have physical trauma based Liability insurance (including self-insurance) settlements of $5,000 or less the ability to resolve Medicare’s recovery claim by paying Medicare 25% of the total liability insurance settlement instead of using the current recovery process.

Information, instructions and model language are listed in the Medicare Beneficiary & Attorney tool kit sections of the MSPRC’s website. Links to this information are provided below.
