The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has reinforced that under the Medicare Secondary Payer provisions, Medicare is always secondary to workers’ compensation and other insurance such as no-fault and liability insurance and that the current CMS review thresholds are CMS workload review thresholds only— not substantive dollar or &lquo;safe harbor&rquo; thresholds for complying with Medicare Secondary Payer law. Therefore, Medicare’s interests must always be considered and protected when settling any workers’ compensation case— even if CMS review thresholds are not met. This program, offered live, outlines several practical approaches to considering and protecting Medicare’s interests in cases not meeting the CMS review thresholds.
