Mr. Roy Franco, Director of Casualty Claims at Franco Signor, will be speaking on “Expanding MSP Recovery and Its Impact on Claims Handling Practices” This conference will be held at the Weston Boston Waterfront on Thursday, May 7, 2015.

Over the past two decades, Roy A. Franco has emerged as one of the principal architects of policies and practices that define the world of Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) compliance. From his experience as Director of Risk Management for Safeway, Inc. from 1993-2010, he realized the need for greater clarity and efficiency in matters related to Medicare compliance. Pursuant to that realization, he became a serious student of Medicare policy and its impact on risk management and revenue.

The Medicare Advocacy Recovery Coalition (MARC) became the vehicle for that reform effort. Founded in 2008 by Franco and others interested in Medicare policy, its membership comprises most sectors of the MSP-regulated community, including plaintiffs, defense attorneys, brokers, trade associations, and third part administrators. The coalition’s primary mission is to advocate for MSP on behalf of Medicare beneficiaries and companies. Its major achievement to date is the Strengthening Medicare and Repaying Taxpayers (SMART) law of 2013.

Drawing on his experience with Safeway and MARC, in 2011 Roy Franco and Jeff Signor founded Franco Signor LLC, which specializes in Medicare compliance. In his capacity as Chief Legal Officer, Roy Franco continues to lead national efforts to streamline the world of Medicare Secondary Payer compliance.
