Get To Know Us
Our background in the legal aspects of Workers’ Compensation, Personal Injury and Social Security cases, combined with our broad experience in each stage of the MSA process, including submission of MSA proposals and negotiation of COBC lien issues, makes us uniquely qualified to assist with the complexities and spending requirements of their MSA Accounts.
The MSA Meds team is well-versed in all aspects of Medicare Set-Asides, including what treatments Medicare covers for each specific condition; MSA pricing methods and guidelines; and all the other exhaustive rules, regulations and reporting requirements for maintaining MSA compliance to avoid jeopardizing future Medicare eligibility.
