What Must Be Considered
MMSEA Section 111
Requirements of Conditional Payment reimbursement
Medicare's future protection
The first two are statutory requirements.
MMSEA Section 111 reporting
MMSEA Section 111 reporting applies to all responsible reporting entities (RREs), which is basically any company that is paying on a claim involving a claimant entitled to Medicare. CMS has required quarterly reporting of Workers' Comp cases since Jan. 1, 2010. If an RRE fails to report claims involving Medicare-entitled people, the law calls for a $1,000 civil money penalty per day, per file with no ceiling.
In instances where it has made conditional payments, Medicare has a priority right of recovery. Medicare is authorized to make primary payments when it is a secondary payer only if a primary payer has yet to make "or cannot be reasonably be expected to make" a prompt payment (within 120 days after receipt of the claim). Conditional payments are named so because they are conditioned upon reimbursement to Medicare.
