CMS issued the following brief statement on their website this week:
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) continues to consider expanding its voluntary Medicare Set-Aside Arrangements (MSA) review process to include liability insurance (including self-insurance) and no-fault insurance MSA amounts. CMS will work closely with the stakeholder community to identify how best to implement this potential expansion of voluntary MSA reviews. Please continue to monitor this website for updates and announcements of town hall meetings in the near future.
Notably, very little information provided other than stating CMS will work with stakeholders before formalizing the expansion of the MSA review process to liability and no-fault. Based upon this statement, we can assume CMS will not spring the expansion on us, but give impacted parties an opportunity to comment before a final policy is put in place. Tower MSA will provide updates when further information is released by CMS or town hall meetings are scheduled.
