WorkCompCentral hosts the free webinar on October 18 at 2 p.m. Eastern
CAMARILLO, Calif- WorkCompCentral.com will host “Optimizing MSAs – Before and After Settlement” on October 18, starting at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific. Presented by Tower MSA Partners Chief Compliance Officer Dan Anders and Ametros CEO Marques Torbert, the hour-long webinar examines how to balance the needs of payers and injured workers when crafting settlements.
“Pairing an intervention-driven Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) partner with a supportive professional administrator can produce a fair and reasonable MSA and protect and extend settlement dollars over an injured worker’s life expectancy,” said Anders.
“Optimizing MSAs Before and After Settlement” will cover the identification of cost drivers along with appropriate clinical interventions to optimize the MSA before settlement. The timing of an MSA and the types of settlement obstacles injured workers encounter will also be discussed along with the role of professional administration in containing medical and pharmacy costs, managing Medicare reporting requirements, and advocating for injured workers after settlement. Panelists will also share tips on assembling settlement teams and expeditiously bringing claims to settlement.
“Without a professional administrator, injured workers have to navigate the complex healthcare system, often without access to any savings, on their own,” Torbert said. “Some administrators provide medical networks, pharmacy discounts, 24/7 support, and nurse case managers along with the detailed expense reporting that Medicare requires, all in an effort to support the injured worker.”
There is no charge for the webinar and continuing education credits are available. For more information and to register, click here.
