Based on a recent webinar invitation, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) plans to expand Section 111 reporting to include data from Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Asides (WCMSAs). Per CMS:
CMS will be hosting a webinar regarding the expansion of Section 111 Non-Group Health Plan (NGHP) Total Payment Obligation to Claimant (TPOC) reporting to include Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside (WCMSA) information. The format will be opening remarks and a presentation by CMS that will include background and timelines, followed by a question and answer session. Because this expansion impacts reporting of WCMSAs, it is strongly recommended that Responsible Reporting Entities (RREs) who report Workers’ Compensation settlements attend.
The webinar will be held on November 13, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. ET. The notice can be found here.
We encourage anyone managing Section 111 reporting for a WC RRE to tune in. Please note that there is no pre-registration. The link and call-in phone numbers are on the notice, and you log in shortly before the webinar’s start time.
Tower will provide a post-webinar summary with key takeaways and recommendations.
