Medicare Recovery Made Simple

Navigating the Medicare recovery system just became a whole lot easier with the deployment of the new website launched by the new national MSP Recovery Contractor (MSPRC). The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has consolidated all of the functions and workloads related to Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) post-payment recoveries into one MSP recovery contract.

The contract for the new national MSP Recovery Contractor (MSPRC) was implemented on October 2, 2006. The MSPRC has taken over new MSP recovery cases and most existing cases. Chickasaw Nation Industries, Inc. (CNI) is the national contractor. CNI has received several prestigious national awards including: Top Small Businesses, ranked #23 by Federal Times 2006; U.S. Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency National Minority Small Business of the Year SBA Administrator’s “Award for Excellence” 2005; and American Indian-Owned Businesses, ranked #2 by New Mexico Business Weekly 2004.

The website explains in detail the procedures and forms utilized by CNI to contact the parties and implement the procedures that it utilizes for recovery in: Workers’ Compensation, Liability, Med-Pay, PIP and Group Health Plan recoveries.

The new website site is a major step forward in assisting all parties in the recovery process.
