Medicare Secondary Payer

Event Details

  • Date:
  • Venue: Rayburn House Office Building
  • Division: Civil Justice Academy

Program Description:   In most cases, Medicare is the primary payer for medical services for those covered under the program; however, in special circumstances, such as accidents and job-related injuries, Medicare may be billed first but the expenses are ultimately the responsibility of a third party.  According to many, the process for reimbursement of these claims has become cumbersome and time consuming. Congress addressed the issue late last year, and this briefing will seek to provide a fresh look at the current state of Medicare Secondary Payer.

Please join us for a discussion on the latest developments on the Medicare Secondary Payer laws, led by David Farber, Partner, Patton Boggs LLP.
