Workers’ Compensation and Medicare/Medicaid – New Legislation
Legislation has been introduced in Washington, D.C. to streamline the process of coordinating workers’ compensation benefits with Medicare and Medicaid coverage when settling workers’ compensation claims. Currently, it is taking way too long for the Federal government to provide the information regarding Medicare/Medicaid payments made to injured workers that is required to be contained in any workers’ compensation settlement. Stay tuned to see how this bill fares in Congress. If you have questions regarding your workers’ compensation claim, contact the law office of Philip H. Garrow at 541-382-3736.
