A Medicare Set-Aside is a financial agreement that allocates a portion of a settlement to pay for future medical services related to a workers' compensation illness or disease. Often, an MSA is so expensive that it precludes the ability to resolve a case. Our mediators and nurse case managers specialize in meeting with the parties to develop a plan that can reduce the anticipated MSA.
Only through cooperation with the parties and physicians can an appropriate MSA that is reflective of the injured workers needs at the time of the settlement will be reached by agreement. It is rare that an MSA can be adjusted without the input of the parties and the treating medical providers.
