MARC Urges CMS to Revise Section 111 Penalties Proposed Rule

WASHINGTON, DC – In comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Medicare Advocacy Recovery Coalition (MARC) today urged the agency to substantially revise its proposed rule establishing penalties for Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) late reporting.
“We appreciate the opportunity to submit comments to CMS regarding this very important and long overdue proposal that has the potential to affect businesses across the country — from the largest corporations to small businesses on Main Street,” said MARC Chair Re Knack. “However, we believe the current proposed rule contains a number of flaws that unduly penalize entities that make a good faith effort to report MSP claims, rather than those who intentionally refuse to report. Therefore, we urge the agency to withdraw its proposed rule and issue a new proposal that is aligned with existing law to encourage compliance and better serve beneficiaries.”
