The Impact Of Social Security Benefits And Medicare Compliance On Workers' Compensation Settlements

Webinar: ID# 1011702
Recorded CD
About This Course:
You will learn how the interrelationship between SS disability benefits and workers' compensation makes settlement of WC cases more attractive for the injured worker. This live audio conference will also cover the possible off-set for SS old age benefits as a factor in valuing cases for settlement.

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 effects both Medicare beneficiaries and nonbeneficiaries 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 overfunding the MSA?

Attendance will help all to de-mystify the impact of the SS Act on workers' compensation settlements and will provide authoritative references to the latest cases and opinions on the subject.
