Medicare Secondary Payer Bill Introduced in U.S. House as H.R. 1982

Yesterday, U.S. Congressmen Dave Reichert (R-WA) and Mike Thompson (D-CA) introduced the Medicare Secondary Payer and Workers’ Compensation Settlement Agreement Act (H.R. 1982) in the U.S. House of Representatives.

A full text H.R. 1982 is not yet available.  But, it is believed to be similar to H.R. 5384, which was introduced in the past congressional session but failed to pass.

In a press release issued by Congressman Reichert’s office, H.R. 1982 “establishes clear and consistent standards for an administrative process that provides reasonable protections for injured workers and Medicare”.

We will let you know more details as soon as the full text of the bill is released.
