About

The Medicare Secondary Payer Statute (MSP) provides Medicare with the statutory right to remain a secondary payer where a primary payer exists for claim-related Medicare-covered medical treatment. A primary payer is defined by Medicare as a liability, no fault, self-insured, or workers’ compensation insurance plan. The obligation to assume primary payment responsibility under the statute occurs upon the settlement, judgment, or award of an action against a defined primary plan regardless of an admission of liability. To protect all of the parties to an action in the resolution of a civil claim, it is important that the parties be aware of Medicare’s defined areas of Medicare compliance and Medicare’s recovery rights under the Medicare Secondary Payer Statute.
