The Impact of Social Security Benefits and Medicare Compliance on Workers' Compensation Settlements

Get a grasp on the impact that the Social Security Act has on workers' compensation settlements, and make sure you're in compliance with the Medicare Secondary Payer Act.

Learn how the interrelationship between Social Security disability benefits and workers' compensation makes settlement of workers' compensation cases more attractive for the injured worker. This information will also cover the possible off-set for Social Security old age benefits as a factor in valuing cases for settlement. The parties to a workers' compensation case are now the worker, the employer/insurer and Medicare. You will learn how compliance with the Medicare Secondary Payer Act affects both Medicare beneficiaries and nonbeneficiaries who are resolving the medical portion of a workers' compensation claim. The panel will answer the following questions: Which cases are reported to Medicare? What are the obligations of the parties to Medicare? Can the cumbersome process of Medicare approval be avoided? How can the parties reasonably consider Medicare's interest without overfunding the Medicare Set Aside?
