One of the questions we most frequently encounter is, “Will Medicare Re-Consider this MSA if Claimant’s Circumstances Change?”. For some time, the answer has been “No.” However, as of July 10, 2017, CMS has changed course, albeit with very strict limitations.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued an updated version of the Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Portal (WCMSAP) User Guide. (Version 5.1, July 10, 2017.) This Guide is predominantly utilized by vendors for the electronic submission of Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) plans to CMS. However, here CMS utilized this source for the dissemination of their new Amended Review guidelines.
The Guide can be found here:
