The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced yesterday that the newly released 2007 Centers for Disease Control (CDC) life tables must be used for all Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set-Asides (WCMSA) submitted or reopened on or after October 31, 2011.

October 4, 2011
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recently published its 2007 United States Life Tables. Effective October 31, 2011, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will begin referencing the CDC’s Table 1: Life table for the total population: United States, 2007, for WCMSA life expectancy calculations. This means that for any newly submitted WCMSA proposal received by CMS’ Coordination of Benefits Contractor (COBC), or where any WCMSA case is reopened on or after October 31, 2011, CMS will apply the CDC’s 2007 Table 1 for life expectancy calculations. You may access the CDC’s United States Life Tables in the related links outside of CMS section of this page.
