Medicare Set-Aside Allocations
The Medicare Set Aside Program is federal legislation designed to prevent the shifting of responsibility for medical treatment from a primary payor or insurance carrier to Medicare.

The Medicare Set Aside Amount will be an amount of money set aside in an account to cover the expenses of an injured worker.  This amount is based on the following and is reviewed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for approval:
  • Physician recommendations
  • Comprehensive review of the medical records
  • Review of medical claim history

This money is in an individual account and can only be used for the medical expenses that Medicare would usually cover had it not been a work injury.

Our Medicare Set-Aside Allocators can determine the appropriate set-aside amount based on:
  • An expert analysis of the condition
  • Current treatment plan
  • Projected future treatment
  • Life expectancy
Medicare Set-Aside Allocations include several components:
  • Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement (MSA)
  • Medicare confirmation / lien verification (conditional payments)
  • Submission to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Professional administration of the MSA
