Changes made Eliminating Revisions to medicare set-Asides

AttorneyAngelo Sevarino, the "Medicare Guru" for those of us in the field of WC law, has advised the Connewcticut Bar Association Worker's Compensation Section menbership of the following important update regarding Medicare set-asides.

"CMS has just released memorandum #11 dated August 25, 2008 and effective immediately it is no longer possible to petition CMS for a reduction or termination of an established set-aside. Previously we had the ability after 5 years to have CMS take a "second look" but that option is now" no longer available.

As always, if you think this change applies to your situation, feel free to contact the office.
