WCMSA Helpful Hints – Part 6 of 10

Submitting a Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Allocation (WCMSA) is simpler in theory than in practice. Below is a common error often made when submitting a WCMSA to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as some helpful hints to avoid the error. If you need more information or further help with settling claims or setting up a Medicare Set-Aside for a client, call 855.931.3003 or fill out the form.




Helpful Hint*

  • Make sure each item on the CMS request letter is addressed timely, especially the items printed in ALL CAPS. Specific reply language may be necessary.
  • Do not resubmit documents submitted previously unless you have confirmed they were not received. If you are unsure of what is needed, call the WCRC to see if what you are sending will be sufficient.


Don’t take unnecessary risks during settlement! Protect your clients’ Medicare benefits with a MSA.  To get started or even if you just have questions about a particular case you’re working on, contact Medivest at 855.931.3003 or fill out the form.
