Medicare Timeframe

Posted by Mary Skinner

Is there a timeframe between plaintiff's request to Medicare for their lien/subrogation amount and when that information is required to be provided back to the plaintiff? And, are there penalties for failure to provide that information in the State of Oregon?

Thanks for your time.

CMS guidelines are that the MSPRC has 45 days from date of receipt to respond to any written request. With that said it is always good to make a follow up phone call to ensure that they have received your written request and that they have your request and signed authorization in their system.
