The PAID Act Live! What you need to know
The PAID Act is now live – how this changes Medicare compliance and what you need to know!
Presenter: Mark Popolizio
Description and Objectives: Lights, camera, action! On December 11, 2021, the Provide Accurate Information Directly (PAID) Act went live! Signed into law in December 2020, the PAID Act requires the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide insurers (including self-insurers) with key information regarding a claimant’s Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) and Medicare Part D (Prescription Drugs) enrollment status. With Medicare Advantage recovery claims and lawsuits on the rise, the PAID Act provides insurers with critical information to proactively address Medicare Advantage and Part D recovery claims to avoid liability if they so elect.

- What is the PAID Act’s objectives?
- What information will CMS be providing insurers?
- How can insurers take advantage of the PAID Act data?
- Medicare Advantage and Part D recovery rights
- Recent court rulings (including two Ohio decisions) allowing Medicare Advantage plans to sue insurers for “double damages”
