On 2/11/2014, CMS requested from the Industry regarding its proposed expansion of the re-review process for a WCMSA. CMS has always allowed its contractor to conduct re-reviews for mathematical errors or where certain records were omitted with the original submission, but after years of Industry concerns is considering this important expansion of the process.
CMS has agreed to take comments through 3/31/2014 and will unveil the final implementation of the proposed expansion at a Town Hall conference call later this year, hopefully as early as this Spring.
We are pleased to participate in this important process. We have asked CMS to consider expanding the re-review process to consider application of state workers’ compensation law/regulations/rules or other legal issues as developed by the case law. We have made other important suggestions in our letter to the Agency. To read the original CMS request, click here.
