Medicare Liability Set-Asides: Mischief in the Making?

In the May 2019 issue of Trial News, Maria Diamond outlines the genesis of set-asides in the Medicare Secondary Payer Act (MSP), which preclude Medicare from paying for any medical care that has been paid or can reasonably be expected to be paid under a workers’ compensation law or plan; an automobile or liability insurance policy or plan (including a self-insured); or no-fault insurance. A Medicare set-aside (MSA) is neither a legal creation nor a requirement, but rather the settlement industry’s brainchild for MSP compliance. In the article, Maria outlines the current state of affairs in liability cases and offers a checklist for handling settlements or recoveries.

“My daughter was injured during birth when a catheter punctured my womb. She suffered from a loss of blood, and several other mistakes were made before she was finally resuscitated. My mother, who is a nurse, suggested Judy Massong. With her as my attorney, I felt I was in the most experienced hands. With Judy's help, we settled twice, once with the hospital and again with the medical device manufacturer. Judy is as strong as a bulldog, and she always made it her goal to keep us informed and help us find the resolution we needed as a family. We have worked hard on my daughter’s recovery, and as challenging as it can be, she is an affectionate, loving, social, bright little girl.” Julie L.
