About This Course:
The parties to a WC 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 non-beneficiaries who are resolving the medical portion of a WC 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 over-funding the Medicare set-aside?
