1.16.2018 Presentations

Members of the National Alliance of Medicare Set-Aside Professionals’ Evidence-Based Medicine Committee urged CMS representatives to use more sensible pharmacy allocations in Workers’ Compensation MSAs (WCMSAs) that have chronic opioid prescriptions.

Joined by Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy’s staff, NAMSAP Committee Co-chairs Gary Patureau and NBKL Shareholder Amy Bilton discussed the issue with Sherri McQueen, Steve Forry and John Jenkins at CMS’s Office of Financial Management on December 11. At Ms. McQueen’s request, the organization recapped its points and recommendations in a December 18 letter.
