As previously reported weeks ago, ongoing changes are being considered with regard to Medicare and issues regarding their status as Secondary Payer on litigation claims. The House Energy and Oversight Committee reportedly is planning a hearing on MSP issues June 22, 2011 and several sources have confirmed they will hear testimony from employer and insurer representatives.
We will continue to report as updates are provided from CMS or through a number of additional sources and resources. Please feel free to contact Shawn R. Biery, J.D., M.S.S.C. at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding Medicare Set-Aside issues. Feel free to post them on our blog at: http://keefe-law.com/kcablog.html
