Monday, February 28, 2022

Workers’ compensation Medicare set-asides (WCMSAs) continue to present challenges for insurers. High WCMSA allocation amounts can complicate claim settlement and even prevent claim closure altogether. However, you often have more power than you think when it comes to reducing allocation costs. Time to take back control with effective WCMSA cost-mitigation strategies. This session will put you back in the driver’s seat to reduce WCMSA costs and get claims settled.

In this webinar, topics discussed include:

  • Understanding CMS’s allocation approaches
  • Identifying cost drivers early to get ahead of the curve
  • Reducing prescription drug allocations – options to maximize cost savings
  • Fighting back! Using Re-Review and Amended Review to reduce allocations
  • Putting it all together – game planning for success (and settlement!)
