Does MMSEA Require A Verification Process?

Does MMSEA require an updated verification process or one that you did earlier (a year ago or so)?

Great question, especially if there is a client who is not yet a Medicare enrolled beneficiary at the time you start negotiations. CMS (Medicare) advises that the RRE (insurer or self-insured, or payer of the settlement or judgment) needs to update their QUERY right up until a payment event (sign settlement agreement, receive court order) occurs.
