The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services extended the registration period for Liability Insurance (including Self-Insurance), No-Fault Insurance, and Workers' Compensation Responsible Reporting Entities (RREs) for Medicare Secondary Payer Mandatory Reporting purposes. RREs now have from May 1, 2009, through September 30, 2009, to register. Start dates for testing and live production submission have also been delayed or changed.

A copy of our previously circulated Insurance, Banks & Financial Services Bulletin discussing the Medicare Secondary Payer Mandatory Reporting Provisions is attached: www.bricker.com/Publications/articles/1456.pdf 

Additional Secondary Payer Mandatory Reporting updates are listed on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services webpage which can be accessed using the following link: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/MandatoryInsRep/03_Liability_Self_No_Fault_Insurance_and_Workers_Compensation.asp#TopOfPage
