Texas Workers' Compensation Commission v. Patient Advocates of Texas, et al, Decided May 28, 2004.
Workers' Compensation News - July 14, 2004 Volume 2 Issue 228

CMS: NJ ADOPTS A SIGN OF THE TIMES. The NJ Division of Workers' Compensation has created a new hearing list designation..."Pending Medicare Approval.” It can be assumed that these cases are matters that the parties have voluntarily noticed the Court of the existence of potential Medicare interests. Rumor has it that between 25,000 and 40,000 cases on the NJ docket alone are subject to CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service) review. The number of cases being given that designation will obviously grow epidemically in the near future to include ALL cases involving: beneficiaries presently on SSA disability OR potential beneficiaries, ie. 62.5 yrs and those who may seek benefits in the near future. Probably all SIF (Second Injury Fund) matters will be subject that designation universally. The number of cases may far exceed those where the State is already data-matching: ie. TDB liens, matrimonial liens and child support liens.
