Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) provided the following notice regarding “Non-Group Health Plan ORM Recovery Workload Transition Webinar.”
As part of the continuing efforts to improve the Coordination of Benefits & Recovery (“COB&R”) program and claims payment accuracy in Medicare Secondary Payer situations, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will be transitioning a portion of the Non-Group Health Plan recovery workload from the Benefits Coordination & Recovery Center to its Commercial Repayment Center (“CRC”). After October 1, 2015, the CRC will be responsible for the recovery of conditional payments in situations where CMS is pursuing recovery directly from a liability insurer, no-fault insurer or Workers’ Compensation entity as the identified debtor. The following webinar should provide more guidance for this transition. The teleconference will be held on September 17, 2015 at 2:00pm, ET.
