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.

“I had a medical negligence case where my bile duct was completely cut during gall bladder surgery. I have had several surgeries for corrections since then. Judy Massong was recommended to me by a friend, and it felt right to have an attorney with a medical background. I adore Judy; she is compassionate and caring and communicates well. I feel comfortable that she is a female, and I am so pleased with how she handled my case. She truly believes in what she’s doing, and she’s a great advocate for the victim.” Melody P.
