Since 2001, Walton Lantaff has worked with insurers to protect Medicare’s interests pursuant to the Medicare Secondary Payer Statute (42 U.S.C. 1395y(b)(2)) (the MSP). Compliance with the federal statutes and regulations that support the MSP encompasses a fast-paced, and constantly changing legal landscape. It requires dedicated attorneys with the knowledge and experience to monitor the new developments in the industry and federal cases interpreting the statute and regulations promulgated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Walton Lantaff’s Medicare department offers a range of services for both workers’ compensation claims and liability cases. These services include:
Assessment of legal obligations on a case-by-case basis
