Medicare recovery process demystified.

Practitioners for plaintiffs and defendants alike shiver upon hearing the words Medicare Secondary Payer Recovery Contractor. Fear not lawyers who have internet access, the MSPRC has availed itself of modern technology and done lawyers a huge favor at the same time with the the MSPRC website, which is robust, user-friendly, and full featured with forms, letters, tool kits, and contact information. My favorite part is the MSPRC flow-chart of the overview of the recovery process. The Letters section has a menu with codes that correspond to the various letters sent during the recovery process. Identify the code on your letter and find the corresponding menu. You can click for a brief description of the letter, but the best feature is the advice on what step to proceed to next on the flow chart. Very cool stuff for attorneys suffering through the process.
