Medicare Secondary Payer Act CLE

Posted on: May 7, 2014 | Posted in: Committees

Michael Ecuyer, from Gainsburgh Benjamin, and Nicholas D'Aquilla,  from The Garretson Group, led a spirited discussion on the Medical Secondary Payer Act at the Healthcare Committee on May 7, 2014. Those in attendance were educated by both speakers on settlement issues, scenarios, and dealing with Medicare. The specific issues addressed included an update on the implementation of the Strengthening Medicare and Repaying Taxpayers "SMART" Act, potential changes forthcoming to Medicaid secondary payer obligations, a review of private health insurance, reimbursement, subrogation rights, and Medicare Set Asides in liability settlements. A discussion of "war stories" followed the presentation and closed the program.
