Task Force Reports
In the Spring of 2008, NAELA's Public Policy Committee created a Medicare Task Force to review the use of Set-Aside Arrangements in settling personal injury cases where third-party liability for the payment of Medicare-covered medical expenses has been established. The Task Force was asked to explore the appropriateness of MSAs, including whether they are required by the Medicare Secondary Payer Program (MSP) as contained in the Medicare statute. The findings and recommendations of the Task Force are followed by a list of legal resources that provide background reference and information about the Medicare Second Payer Program. The Task Force's report was approved by NAELA's Board of Directors at the Fall Institute in San Diego in November 2010.
