Action Needed! Support HR 1982, the Medicare Secondary Payer & Workers' Compensation Settlement Act!
When Medicare and workers' comp overlap, injured workers are required to protect Medicare's interests. However, under the current Medicare system, workers' compensation settlements are often seriously delayed.
HR 1982 is a bipartisan bill, and would streamline the CMS/Medicare process for injured workers. Direct payments would be available, under some circumstances. To read the bill, click here.
At McCroskey Law, we share our clients' frustration with the current Medicare Set-Aside system. Like many of our colleagues, the workers' compensation team at McCroskey Law supports HR 1982. We urge our clients to contact their Congress Members, and voice their support for this bill.
Thank you for your support of HR 1982, and McCroskey Law.
