Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Portal (WCMSAP)

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is currently Pilot Testing the Workers' Compensation Medicare Set-aside Portal (WCMSAP), a web-based application. This new initiative will allow submitters of Workers' Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Arrangements (WCMSAs) to directly enter case information, upload documentation, and receive case status information through the use of a secure Web portal. 

This secure Web portal will greatly improve the efficiency of the submission process for WCMSAs, including receipt of the proposal by its Workers' Compensation Review Contractor (WCRC). The WCMSAP, a web-based application, will allow attorneys, beneficiaries, claimants, insurance carriers, representative payees, and WCMSA vendors to:

• Create a work-in-progress case
• Submit WCMSA cases
• Perform case lookups
• Append documentation to a case
