Tower MSA Partners Arranges for CMS Officials to Headline WCI’s MSP Sessions
Posted on November 30, 2021 by Tower MSA Partners
When the WCI Conference invited Tower MSA Partners to produce the first day of its Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) compliance track, Tower asked representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to kick-off a trio of MSP panels.
“It’s the 20th anniversary of CMS launching its Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) review program,” said Tower’s Chief Compliance Officer Dan Anders. “We thought this would be a great opportunity for attendees to listen and ask questions of the key policymakers on all matters related to MSP enforcement.”
The section will start with a CMS Townhall covering such matters as the implantation of the PAID Act and how not to run afoul of CMS when submitting an MSA at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, December 14. Anders will moderate the Townhall. Panelists appearing via video will be Deputy Director of MSP Program Operations Jackie Cipa, Director MSP Program Operations Steve Forry, and John Jenkins, Jr., Health Insurance Specialist, Division of MSP Program Operations, CMS.
Following at 2 p.m. is “Don’t Forget Medicare Conditional Payments!” moderated by Tower’s Chief Operating Officer Kristine Dudley and featuring Rasa Fumagalli, Director of MSP Compliance with Synergy Settlement Solutions and Heather Schwartz Sanderson of the Sanderson Firm.
“Conditional payment matters frequently take a backseat to Medicare Set-Asides,” Dudley said. “These experts will show you how to discharge Medicare conditional payment and Medicare Advantage plan reimbursement demands with confidence for both injured worker and payer.”
Anders returns as a panelist with Ametros General Counsel Shawn Deane and Mark Meyer, Claim Attorney for Montana State Fund, for the 3:15 p.m. session, “It’s Still Ok to Submit an MSA.” Sanderson will moderate the discussion designed to show how to balance care, cost and compliance to secure a CMS-approved MSA.
The 75th Annual WCI Conference will be held December 12-15 at the Orlando World Center Marriott. Please see https://www.wci360.com/conference/.
