The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host webinars on March 13 and March 14, 2019 for CRCP users regarding upcoming enhancements to the Medicare Secondary Payment Recovery Portal (MSPRP) and Commercial Repayment Center Portal (CRCP). Since the MSPRP focuses on personal injury recoveries only, workers’ compensation, no-fault and liability insurance practitioners are advised to attend the March 13th webinar. The enhancements relate to electronic payment functionality available on April 1st. We applaud CMS for continuing to enhance and invest in self-service options that allow for swifter resolution of conditional payment claims and encourage CMS to allow for a robust question and answer period to address any ambiguities.
