Taylor Porter attorneys Savannah Smith and Sarah White have earned the Certified Medicare Secondary Payer Professional (CMSP) certification from the Louisiana Association of Self Insured Employers (LASIE).
The CMSP certification is designed to identify those professionals who work within the workers’ compensation and liability insurance industry and have demonstrated superior knowledge and skills in the field of Medicare Secondary Payer Compliance and the Medicare Secondary Payer Act. To earn this designation, candidates successfully complete a 36-hour course, which includes an exam and case study. To maintain the CMSP certification, the practitioner must take 24 hours of continuing education every two years in the Medicare Secondary Payer Compliance field.
Smith and White join Taylor Porter Partner Barrye Miyagi as three of the Firm's certified CMSP professionals.
Taylor Porter's Medicare Secondary Payer and MMSEA (Section 111) Compliance practice represents clients by focusing on the Medicare Secondary Payer Act and the related reimbursement and reporting obligations. With substantial experience in the defense of occupational exposure, toxic tort, products liability, and other personal injury claims, Taylor Porter attorneys remain abreast of the Medicare regulations, the mandatory reporting obligations as well as the related case law and guidance which continues to evolve. Our attorneys counsel clients through Medicare-related issues arising from personal injury litigation and settlements to ensure that our clients are able to adequately and competently comply with Medicare reporting and reimbursement obligations and other related federal and state regulations. Our attorneys also closely follow proposed legislation including the Provide Accurate Information Directly Act (the “Paid Act”) which was recently introduced into Congress. The Paid Act is designed to assist settling parties in identifying Medicare, Medicaid and Medicare Part C and D providers who have reimbursement rights.
