Axiom National, LLC is a boutique Medicare compliance and settlement planning consultancy catering to the workers’ compensation and liability claims marketplace. Our primary focus is to enable our clients to confidently and efficiently close claims while complying with all Medicare Secondary Payer regulations.
This abbreviated MSA allocation provides an accurate projection of the future cost of medical care in a workers’ compensation or liability settlement. This product is intended for planning and evaluation purposes in cases where the Social Security Disability status and/or Medicare eligibility status…
Our Medicare Set Aside product (Workers’ Compensation/Liability) allows our customers to settle cases with confidence. Our MSA’s produce the lowest, most realistic allocation amounts while providing a report that will withstand CMS scrutiny.
Once Axiom has completed the WCMSA/LMSA and receives a request from our client for CMS review and approval, the necessary documentation is prepared and submitted to CMS. This service includes resubmission of the case to CMS for reconsideration, if necessary, and following the process through all the way to approval.
Axiom National’s Abridged Cost Projection (ACP) is designed to provide the claims professional and/or defense counsel with a detailed, accurate projection of all the current and follow up costs associated with one of the following: specific surgical procedure, prosthetic device, durable medical equipment (DME), medical device, or infusion therapy. This service is utilized by our clients principally for establishing medical reserves or settlement evaluation.
Our Medical Cost Projections provide the claims professional with an unbiased third-party estimation of the future cost of care. It is a useful tool for setting accurate reserves and can be a key component for settlement negotiations. Medical Cost Projections are for those claims where a WCMSA/LMSA is not yet appropriate.
Axiom will quickly confirm if a claimant has applied for Social Security Disability Benefits. Application for and/or approval of Social Security Disability Benefits means the claimant meets Medicare’s “reasonable expectation of Medicare eligibility within 30 months” threshold, in which case completing and funding a Medicare Set Aside is recommended. We will also quickly determine if a claimant is a current Medicare beneficiary, and whether CMS is alleging they have made Conditional Payments on the claimants behalf and if they are asserting a lien
Identifying and resolving CMS conditional payments and liens is at the heart of Medicare Secondary Payer Act compliance. Let our professional staff bring resolution to any conditional payment or lien issues your company may have.
Structured settlements offer many benefits to all parties when it comes to settlement of a workers’ compensation or liability claim file. For carriers and insured’s, a structure can represent significant cost savings versus a lump sum payment. For plaintiffs and their attorneys, a structure represents security and peace of mind.
With Axiom you can expect:

% Zero Allocation/Waiver success rate
