There will be an in depth discussion of the types of administration utilized in Workers' Compensation and Liability settlements, current practices in the industry, who currently utilizes some form of management as well as some differences from Workers' Compensation to Liability cases.  

Discussion topics will include:

  • Professional Administration/what cases are appropriate? Funding? WC different than Liability?
  • Separate funding for non-Medicare covered items
  • Self-Administration assistance tools/is the industry generally aware of this low cost  product?  
  • Employee utilization of  Set Aside funds

Is it realistic to think the average Employee can properly manage the funds in accordance with CMS Guidelines?  While there are no  guidelines in Liability cases, what would the expectation be? 

 

What exposures may exist to which parties if the administration is not broached at time of settlement?

 

CMS very recently sent a CPN (Conditional Payment Notice) to a Claimant an a Liability case seeking recovery  for both 'pre' and  'post 'settlement' treatment, could this be a precursor to what the NPRN (Notice of Proposed Rule Making) scheduled for September?
