Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set Aside Arrangements Reference Guide
This guide is intended to help submitters understand the process used by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for approving proposed Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement (WCMSA) amounts and to serve as a reference for those choosing to submit such amounts to CMS for approval. Submitters may include injured workers themselves (claimants), their attorneys, Workers’ Compensation (WC) Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement (MSA) agents or consultants, or claimants’ other appointed representatives. The information is reviewed and potentially updated on a quarterly basis, but is based upon the original guidance in place for over ten years.
