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.

“We have been Maria’s clients since the mid-1990’s and developed more than an attorney-client relationship. One of our cases resulted in the need for extensive surgery, and we struggled with our insurance to cover the cost of the initial surgery and recovery. Maria was instrumental in resolving all of these issues. Successful legal representation can only be judged by the outcome and the client’s overall satisfaction. In our case, we have been more than pleased with the results and Maria’s expertise.” Rose and David F-W
