Future Medical Payments & Medicare Set-Asides

It is well established that Medicare’s interest must be considered anytime a Medicare beneficiary recovers for future medicals. CMS expects funds allocated to medical on Medicare covered services be exhausted before Medicare is ever billed. The Social Security Act precludes Medicare payment for services to the extent that payment has been made or can be reasonably expected to be made promptly under liability insurance. In this context, a Medicare Set-Aside should be considered.
