On September 20, 2013, CMS issued an interim final rule in the Federal Register which specifies the process and timeline for expanding the current MSP Web portal to comply with Section 201 of the SMART Act.  A copy of the interim final rule in the Federal Register can be accessed here.


CMS has issued proposed rules for implementing the provision of the SMART Act of 2012, which in part requires provision of a right of appeal and appeal process “for liability insurance (including selfinsurance), no-fault insurance, and workers’ compensation laws or plans when Medicare pursues a Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) recovery claim directly from the liability insurance (including self-insurance), no fault insurance, or workers’ compensation law or plan.” Additional information concerning the proposed rule and information regarding the public comment period is available at the U.S. Federal Register website.
