Today’s post comes to just from my colleague Jon Gelman of New Jersey.
The Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-aside Portal (WCMSAP) application has gone “live” and is now available for users. WCMSAP allows submitters of Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Arrangements (WCMSAs) to directly enter case information, upload documentation, and receive case status information through the use of a secure Web portal. This site provides an interface for entry of Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Arrangements (WCMSA) proposals. Attorneys, Medicare beneficiaries, claimants, insurance carriers and WCMSA vendors may use this site to enter the case information directly. Through the web-based application you can:
• Create a work-in-progress case
• Submit WCMSA cases
• Perform case lookups
• Append documentation to a case
The site also provides attorneys, Medicare beneficiaries, claimants, insurance carriers, and WCMSA vendors with the ability to track their submitted cases and the statuses without inquiry to the Coordination of Benefits Contractor (COBC) or the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
This secure Web portal will greatly improve the efficiency of the submission process for WCMSAs, including receipt of the proposal by its Workers’ Compensation Review Contractor (WCRC).
Prior to attempting to register, you should read the New Registration section of the User guide. The URL for the WCMSAP may be found here. The WCMSAP User Guide may be found here, and also in the “Reference Material” section of the WCMSAP application.
Instructions on how to register for Computer Based Training (CBTs) for WCMSAP are also available. These courses are designed to assist submitters of Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Arrangements (WCMSAs) with the registration and use of the WCMSAP.
