The Medicare Advocacy Recovery Coalition (MARC) is a national Coalition advocating for the improvement of the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) programs. 

The Coalition is dedicated to building collaborative partnerships and strategic alliances with beneficiaries, affected companies, and a wide range of other stakeholders to work with the Congress and government agencies to recommend solutions and implement MSP reforms that will improve the process for all, especially Medicare beneficiaries.  

MARC was formed in 2008 by industry leaders who saw a critical need to improve the failing MSP system. Since the Coalition’s inception, MARC has been instrumental in achieving legislative and regulatory reform on important MSP issues. Learn more about MARC’s accomplishments. 

MARC’s membership represents virtually every sector of the MSP regulated community, including plaintiffs and defense attorneys, brokers, insureds, insurers, insurance, and trade associations, self-insureds, and third-party administrators.    


MARC strives to ensure that all stakeholders affected by the federal Secondary Payer law can work within an efficient and comprehensive statutory and regulatory system that provides timely resolution of disputes and the fair reimbursement of claims involving secondary payer issues. We will achieve this through:

  • Facilitating national-level coordination, collaboration, and communication among the MARC members.
  • Formulating policy recommendations to improve Medicare secondary payer reimbursement and recovery procedures.
  • Ensuring Medicare beneficiaries receive coordinated and appropriate coverage for claims involving secondary payer concerns.
  • Protecting of the Medicare Trust Fund by facilitating timely and appropriate reimbursement of funds owed under the law; and
  • Implementing legislative and regulatory improvements to ensure that the Medicare secondary payer program works effectively, efficiently, and economically.
