DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, THE SESSION ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR FEBRUARY 13TH SESSION WAS POSTPONED AND MOVED TO THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH.

6 Skills Credits:

This seminar has been approved for transitional and non-transitional credits.

Seminar Overview:

Claims of liens by Medicare (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and/or the Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor (MSPRC)), Medicare Part C providers (Medicare Advantage Plans), Departments of Social Services, and subrogation recovery contractors for ERISA governed plans and policies are perhaps the most misunderstood and confusing aspects of the case resolution process.

Our CLE program will focus on lien resolution and will include discussion of the following areas:

Medicare: Original Medicare's claim for reimbursement for conditional payments made for past medical expenses, appropriate notification to Medicare of the plaintiff's lawsuit, obtaining current conditional payment amounts and obtaining a Final Demand Letter from MSPRC; processing of settlement payments from defendants where Medicare is involved; consideration of Medicare with regard to future medical expenses, including Medicare Set-Asides.

Medicare Part C plans (Medicare Advantage): What is the current law with regard to Medicare Advantage, including the distinction between Part C plans with a reimbursement provision and those without in light of Trezza v. Trezza, Potts v. The Rawlings Company, LLC, and In re Avandia Mktg.?

ERISA: Are all ERISA plans the same? What is the difference between a self-funded plan and an insured ERISA plan? What is the effect of GOL 5-335 and CPLR 4545 on ERISA plans?

Does GOL 5-335 apply in cases involving Federal Employees?

What is the impact on self-funded plans of US Airways v. McCutchen, recently decided in the United States Supreme Court?

Do Medicaid liens have to be paid back in full and what is the effect of WOS v. E.M.A. on Ahlborn?
