The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has withdrawn its proposed rule on future medicals called “Medicare Secondary Payer and Future Medicals.” This is a huge victory that AAJ achieved thanks to the excellent guidance provided by AAJ’s Regulatory Counsel, Sarah Rooney, and AAJ’s Medicare Secondary Payer Advisory Group chaired by AAJ President-Elect Larry Tawwater.
AAJ lobbied hard against the proposed rule which was issued in June 2012. The rule would have reduced access to civil justice for Medicare beneficiaries and would have left them without the benefit of Medicare coverage when they are sick or dying. Our lobbying has achieved the results we wanted for you and your clients—CMS has withdrawn the rule from review. This means there currently is no future medical rule pending.
