Whether and how to set up a Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) account to address expected future medical costs when resolving a personal injury case or workers’ compensation matter is often a source of concern for lawyers on both sides. The potential penalties for failing to create an MSA account, if one is required, may be severe and far-reaching.

In this seminar, lawyers representing injured people and insurers, as well as experts in the field of Medicare compliance, will offer tips on:

  • Whether and how to create a Medicare Set-Aside account
  • What concepts and language should be included in settlement agreements to limit potential liabilities for lawyers, insurers and clients

This program is presented in collaboration with the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA), the Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association (MDLA), the Essex and Middlesex county bar associations, and the Bar Association of Norfolk County. Members of MATA, MDLA, the Essex and Middlesex county bar associations, and the Bar Association of Norfolk County, who are not MBA members, may attend the program for $40. You must register by contacting the MBA's Member Services Center at (617) 338-0530.
