Version 2.7 of the Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside (WCMSA) Reference Guide has been released as of March 19, 2018. It can be found here. The two minor changes are the following:
- An updated phone number for the Workers’ Compensation Review Contractor (WCRC). The new phone number is (833) 295-3773. See section 14.0 (pg. 51), Appendix 1 (pg. 61) and Appendix 5 (pg. 84).
- The confidentiality statement has been updated on pg. 9, which now essentially states that CMS will only release information maintained by CMS with explicit consent/written authorization.
No other changes are noted, which corresponds with CMS’ prior indication that no policy changes would arise with the new contractor, Capitol Bridge LLC, which began work earlier this week on March 19th. We will continue to monitor and advise on any updates as they arise.
