Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Portal is Live

                      The Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Portal is Live!

A new online Self-Service Tool to help manage your Medicare recovery case.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has implemented a new web-based tool designed to assist in the resolution of Liability Insurance, No-Fault Insurance, and Workers’ Compensation Medicare recovery cases. The new tool is called, The Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Portal (MSPRP).

The MSPRP gives users (attorneys, insurers, beneficiaries, and TPAs) the ability to access and update certain case specific information online. Activities that currently require written communication or telephone calls to the Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor will soon be able to be done through the portal.

The MSPRP will allow users the ability to electronically perform the following activities:

  • Submit Proof of Representation or Consent to Release documentation – Instead of mailing in an authorization, users will be able to      upload authorizations through the portal.
  • Request conditional payment information –      Requesting an updated conditional payment amount or a copy of a current      conditional payment letter will be as simple as clicking a few buttons.
  • Dispute claims included in a conditional payment letter – Users will be able to view the claims listed on the conditional      payment letter and dispute unrelated claims online.
  • Submit case settlement information –      Users will be able to input settlement information online and upload a      copy of the settlement documentation through the portal.

Click here to learn how to register and access the portal. All information on the new portal is located in the Tool Kits section above.

“Synergy is our guiding light for deferring our contingent legal fees and planning for retirement. The lawyers at Panter Panter & Sampedro, myself included, have been working with them for over ten years using different methods to defer comp and plan for retirement.”

"I don't think I've directly said "thank you" for helping us with Bridgett’s case. We sent the reduced payment to Medicaid and called Bridgett's mom to tell her approximately how much money was going to be left for Bridgett and she broke down over the telephone. Given only $25k of insurance and a $850k medical bill from the hospital she didn't think Bridgett would ever see a penny."
