Please take a moment to read Michael Stack’s article outlining qualities needed in selecting the right MSP compliance service provider.. Medicare Secondary Payer compliance is complicated and penalties can be high. There are a lot of components – Section 111 reporting, Conditional Payments, medical and pharmaceutical interventions, legal interventions, and Medicare Set Aside (MSA) preparation.
Typically these various activities are handled in silos, and time lags and errors can occur during the transfer to the next step. It’s easy to miss a data field or deadline.
In his article, Stack notes that:
“Effective MSP compliance includes a service provider that goes beyond the basics. These providers will offer services that allow members of the claim management team to focus on their job and provide information and resources to comply with Medicare regulations in workers’ compensation claims.”
Tower recognizes that Section 111, Conditional Payments, pre-MSA Triage, all interventions, and MSA preparation through CMS acceptance should occur in a continuous, unbroken process. That’s why we developed an all-inclusive MSP Automation Suite around compliance best practices. Our MSP Automation Suite drives the entire compliance process, automatically updates clients of each activity on the file, escalates medical and pharmacy issues, prompts for interventions and much more.
Claims close faster, quality and accuracy are assured and our clients enjoy smooth settlements. To learn more, contact us at info@TowerMSA.com or 888-331-4941.
