This hybrid market briefing will discuss best practices under the U.S. Medicare laws to provide assurance that the obligations of insurers, their clients and their attorneys are met.
Although it may come as a surprise to some, Medicare, the U.S. government-run health insurance program for senior citizens and certain disabled persons, has directly and permanently changed the claims handling process for the liability insurance market.
Since its enactment in 2007, the mandatory Medicare reporting obligations of companies and liability insurers under U.S. federal law, known as “Section 111,” have been a source of frustration and confusion. The laws about Medicare reporting are opaque and the requirements are onerous.
At this market briefing event, our speaker will explain insurers’ Section 111 obligations: who must report, when to report and what must be reported. Ms. Surcouf will offer suggested best practices under the Medicare laws to ensure that the obligations of insurers, their clients and their attorneys are met. She will also address the status of enforcement efforts by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”), the U.S. administrative agency responsible for administering Medicare, against insurers for noncompliance with Section 111.
