One of the easiest ways to lower the settlement cost is through a structured Medicare Set-Aside. Not only does this reduce the payer’s cost of funding the MSA, but it also provides the injured worker a consistent stream of funds for injury-related medical care over their lifetime.
On June 7 at 2 pm (EDT) Tower will present an informative session on structured settlements for MSAs. Tower’s Chief Compliance Officer will moderate a special guest panel from Arcadia: Alisa Hofmann, Vice President – Workers’ Compensation and Medicare Practices and Lori Vaughn, Director of Arcadia Client Programs. This hour-long webinar will show how structured MSAs can benefit all stakeholders in a settlement – the injured party, Medicare and the insurance carrier or employer.
Attendees will learn:
- How to work with a structured settlement provider to incorporate an MSA structure into settlement.
- The methodology CMS uses to calculate a structured MSA.
- Rules around converting a CMS-approved lump sum MSA into a structured MSA.
- The role of a structured settlement broker pre-settlement, during settlement negotiations and post-settlement.
A Q&A session will follow the presentation, and you can provide questions you’d like to have answered when you register. Please click the link below and register today!
