How Professional Administration Helps You
Professional Administration is a third party service that oversees and manages an injured individual's future medical funds after settlement.
The injured party receives a healthcare card that accesses a network of discounts on prescriptions and healthcare treatment, and will never have to touch a bill.
A professional administrator handles all of the medical concerns regarding pharmacies and doctors, automatically files all reporting for MSA accounts to CMS, and allows the injured party to treat freely.
Thinking About Self-Administering? What You Need to Know:
If you have a Medicare set aside, you carry certain obligations to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services:
1. Funds should be deposited in a separate interest-bearing account
2. All treatments and prescriptions must be verified that they are related to the injury and covered by Medicare
3. Track all expenses, treatments, dates of service and related ICD9/10 codes annually; Reporting must be sent to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
4. Pay bills according to the specific state workers’ compensation fee schedule or “usual and customary” pricing
