On July 9, 2010, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published the 2006 United States Life Tables. This new table comes on the heels of the 2005 life table that just went into effect about three months ago. Effective July 19, 2010, the CMS will begin referencing CDC’s Table 1: Life table for the total population: United States, 2006 for all Workers’ Compensation Medicare Set Asides (WCMSAs). As a result, CMS will apply the new life table on any newly submitted or reopened WCMSA received on or after July 19, 2010.
