The Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) will host a webinar entitled Not Getting it Right Can Cost You: Medicare Secondary Payer Reporting, on September 23 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. EST to review the Medicare Secondary Payer law as it stands today. Sponsored by the RIMS New York Chapter, the webinar will also explore the coordination of benefits post electronic reporting. The presentation will review the requirements and penalties associated with non-compliance of Medicare & Medicaid Schip Extension Act (Section 111), and the registration for electronic reporting, including a discussion of who is a Responsible Reporting Entity. The session will conclude with a discussion of potential contingent liabilities associated with the new reporting requirements and a brief overview of the coalition working to change the law. Panelists include Roy A. Franco, J.D., risk management strategies director for Safeway Inc.; and Katie Fox, manager, Medicare secondary payer compliance (MSP) and resolution unit for MedInsights, Inc.
