On July 13th the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released previously announced enhancements to the Medicare Secondary Payment Recovery Portal (MSPRP). The MSPRP “web-based tool” is designed to assist in the resolution of liability insurance, no-fault insurance, and workers’ compensation Medicare recovery cases. These enhancements reflect CMS’ continued efforts to supply self-service options to the insurance community, as follows:
Workers’ compensation, no-fault and liability insurance entities now can view, print and download the same correspondence sent to the debtor assigned to the case, review diagnosis code explanations, and confirm ORM status. This useful update offers improved transparency and efficiency, particularly when prior information was not readily available.
ECS will continue to monitor the newswire for additional comments from CMS about electronic portal payments. Additional information on how to use this new functionality will be available in Section 22.214.171.124 of the July version of the MSPRP User Guide. The MSPRP User Manual can be found under the “Reference Material” menu option of the MSPRP application.
