The Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement (WCMSA) Reference Guide is written and published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for the purpose of explaining the Workers’ Compensation MSA development and approval process.

The guide, updated routinely, provides a good amount of information regarding the submission and approval process, and how CMS reviews files. It defines a Medicare Set-Aside (MSA), provides the thresholds for submission of workers’ compensation MSAs (set forth infra), discusses lump-sum vs. structured plans, provides administration guidance, reviews the medical and pharmacy review guidelines, and supplies technical submission guidance.  The guide also provides a sample submission and checklist.  It is a solid resource for issues that arise in the WCMSA process.
