SSDI/Medicare Status or Conditional Payment Inquiry

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

What We Offer

With Axiom you can expect:

Detail Oriented Approach

  • We bring a Detail Oriented Approach to Medicare compliance, meaning we consult with our clients to understand your needs and objectives on every file.

Critical Thinking Skills

  • We exercise Critical Thinking skills. Sounds easy enough. However many MSA companies do not. We pay attention to detail, ask questions and employ a common-sense approach to ensure MSA allocations are fair, reasonable, and adhere to CMS trends and guidelines.

Flexibility

  • We offer Flexibility – we can tailor our approach based on our client’s tolerance for risk. We seek to understand our client’s tolerance for risk and provide solutions accordingly. Many MSA vendors in the marketplace are entirely inflexible.

Actionable Recommendations

  • We provide meaningful, actionable Recommendations to reduce cost drivers and we work with our clients to obtain documentation to support reductions in the MSA.

Expertise

  • Our Expertise – we will advise and help you implement a program with regards to CMS submission of your MSA’s. Whether you submit none, some or all of your MSA’s that meet CMS submission thresholds, we can tailor a program that meets your comfort level and tolerance for risk, and that allows you to achieve successful claim resolution.

Straight Talk

  • We provide Straight Talk based on current CMS guidelines and trends. There are MSA vendors in the marketplace who utilize “percentage approach” MSA’s or who arbitrarily reduce MSA’s and then have their clients purchase an insurance policy to protect them from CMS. These approaches are ill-advised, risky, and contrary to CMS guidelines. This is not how Axiom advises their clients.  We do not cut corners that can create unwanted consequences down the road.
