In 1981 the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) statute established that Medicare was to be a secondary payer behind the responsible parties for workers??compensation claims.
In July 2001, Medicare implemented a new tracking system that has begun investigating whether it has paid for services that should have been paid by the insurance companies, self insured's, or third party administrators.
Medicare can make a claim against the employer, insurance company, self insured or third party administrator if it is determined that Medicare has paid for services that were not its responsibility, including double damages.
In July 2001 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS) declared that monies for future medical care and expenses needed to be placed in Medicare Set-aside accounts for certain workers compensation settlements. Failure to comply may result in CMS refusing Medicare coverage for all future medical treatments related to their injury or illness. This can be a serious liability issue.
