Section 8.1 of Medicare's WCMSA Reference Guide advises that its future interests must be considered in ALL workers' compensation cases, regardless of whether a case meets its arbitrary workload review threshold. A WCMSA Allocation helps you predict what portion of a potential settlement, judgment, or order may need to be "set-aside." This medically-based review fully adheres to CMS pricing methodology as set forth by CMS in its WCMSA Reference Guide. Getting a WCMSA report allows you to consider Medicare's interest in all workers' compensation cases, meeting Medicare's expectations and standards.
A moving target over the past decade, Cattie & Gonzalez offers a medically-based LMSA to help parties achieve resolution of their case.

An LMSA Allocation provides you with a snapshot of the maximum amount CMS may be able to claim at a later date.
