NAMSAP’s MSP Policy Palooza 2017 takes place September 27-29 in Baltimore.
Tower MSA Partners’ CEO Rita Wilson and Chief Compliance Officer Daniel Anders, MSCC will participate in two sessions at the National Alliance of Medicare Set Asides Professionals (NAMSAP) Annual Conference this month.
New rules, new contractors, new risks, and the ever-changing healthcare landscape keep the Medicare Secondary Payer industry in constant flux. Where is it heading and how can MSP companies guide clients through changes? Wilson will join Gary Patureau, of the Louisiana Association of Self Insured Employers (LASIE), Optum’s Lavonya Chapman, and Sedgwick’s Michael Merlino to examine trends and prognosticate about the future. “MSP Predictions” will start at 10:45 a.m. on September 29.
“With a new Workers’ Compensation Review Contractor (WCRC), a new WCMSA re-review announcement and the potential for changes with Liability MSAs, payers need MSP guidance now more than ever,” Wilson said. “Presented from the payers’ perspective, this session will focus on the challenges of the current environment, future predictions and a ‘call to action’ for the MSP industry to drive future behaviors.”
Anders and Contact Claims Services’ Jeff Knipper will present the “Alignment of MSP Processes” on September 27 at 4:30 p.m. This session explores the connection among Section 111 reporting, conditional payments and MSAs.
“Traditionally the industry has viewed these as separate activities and kept them in silos,” Anders said. “But each impacts the other and you need a continuous, cohesive process to accurately manage every aspect.”
