Medicare Secondary Payer liability places a range of burdens on pharmaceutical, medical device and other defendants following a plaintiff’s verdict or settlement. Not only can companies find themselves on the line to pay a second round of damages – this time to CMS – if the plaintiffs fail to reimburse Medicare, but defendants are also responsible for costly, time-consuming reporting to the government.

This webinar provides an overview and timeline of reporting responsibilities; discusses best practices in discovery demands, release language, check issuance, and requesting payment/no payment letters from Medicare; examines the Global Resolution Option alternative; and highlights other issues corporate defendants may face, such as future costs and set-asides.
