New Life Tables for Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Asides

March 19, 2020 –

Beginning April 25, 2020, CMS will convert to the CDC’s “Table 1: Life Table for the total population: United States, 2017” for the Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set Aside life expectancy calculations. Only minor or no increase in life expectancy amounts will be seen with the implementation of the new life table by CMS.  A link to the CDC’s 2017 Life Tables can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr68/nvsr68_07-508.pdf
