This third edition of the DRI Defense Practitioner's Guide to Medicare Secondary Payer Issues reflects the experience that the authors gained in the time since the first edition was compiled in May 2010. It remains a quick, accessible reference guide for the practitioner who is actively working to resolve cases involving Medicare Secondary Payer issues. This is truly a desk book for lawyers and claims professionals and not an academic or exhaustive analysis of the law in this area. As such, it is the definitive "must have" desk reference for anyone who addresses claims involving Medicare beneficiaries.
The purpose of this compendium, sponsored by the DRI Governmental Liability Committee, is to provide an assessment of tort cap liability, immunities, and liability standards that apply to state and local governments. A table that breaks down these categories by state is included. The compendium is a desk reference for assessing liability and exposure and refers to the statutes that apply for these areas for each state and the District of Columbia.
