The Impact of Social Security Benefits and Medicare Compliance on Workers' Compensation Settlements
|Date / Time:
You will learn how the interrelationship between Social Security disability benefits and workers' compensation makes settlement of workers' compensation cases more attractive for the injured worker. This live webinar will also cover the possible off-set for Social Security old age benefits as a factor in valuing cases for settlement.
The parties to a workers' compensation case are now the worker, the employer/insurer and Medicare. You will learn how compliance with the Medicare Secondary Payer Act affects both Medicare beneficiaries and nonbeneficiaries who are resolving the medical portion of a workers' compensation claim.
The panel will answer the following questions: Which cases are reported to Medicare? What are the obligations of the parties to Medicare? Can the cumbersome process of Medicare approval be avoided? How can the parties reasonably consider Medicare's interest without overfunding the Medical Savings Account?

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
