Halted: Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor Demand Letters

The Medicare Recovery Contractor (MSPRC) has now posted a notice on its web site that, "...Issuance of the Rights and Responsibilities (“RAR”) and Demand letters has been temporarily suspended while these letters are under review. The MSPRC is still working cases, and the RAR and Demand letters will be mailed out once appropriate revisions have been made."

This follows a recent US District Court ruling enjoining CMS's collection procedures. Haro v. Sebelius, (A. Ariz.) CV 09-134 TUC DCB
