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.
