GAO Gives Ammunition to Change Medicare Reporting for NGHPs

NU Online News Service, April 5, 3:30 p.m. EST

WASHINGTON—Based on a new Government Accountability Office study, the insurance industry and plaintiff’s lawyers are renewing their call for passage of legislation that they argue would make the Medicare Secondary Payment program work better.

David Farber, a lawyer for the Medicare Advocacy Recovery Coalition (MARC), a group of large employers who earlier this year worked with members of the House to craft the original bill, said that his group is “delighted that the GAO has recognized the issues that exist in the MSP program today.”

He adds that several of the issues identified by the GAO can only be solved legislatively. We continue to work with Congress to pass the SMART Act as soon as possible.”
