CMS Updates Life Tables for WCMSAs

Beginning March 27, 2021, CMS will convert to  the CDC’s “Table 1: Life Table for the total population: United States, 2018” for all Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside life expectancy calculations.  A link to the 2018 Life Tables can be found here.  The life tables are used by CMS to calculate the length of medical treatment for a claimant’s life expectancy.  The full alert issued by CMS can be found on the Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside What’s New page on the CMS.gov website here
