CMS Takes a New Direction in the Proposed MSP Appeal Process

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS) has proposed rules for the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) appeals process that will target the “applicable plan” as the primary responsible party for recovery. 

Medicare, in pursuing recovery directly from the applicable plan, removes the beneficiary, as well as the provider or supplier, as the responsible party to initial a re-determination and all subsequent levels of the administrative process that could culminate in judicial review.
