Medicare Issues New MMSEA Section 111 User Guide

On April 18, 2016, CMS announced they issued a new Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP Extension Act (MMSEA) Section 111 User Guide, Version 4.9. New information and instructions for the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) Group Health Plan (GHP) reporting requirements are documented in the Guide.

The new GHP User Guide provides an overview of the related Section 111 legislation, MSP rules, entities that are required to report, and the GHP reporting process followed by detailed instructions and requirements.

The first section of the GHP User Guide provides a list of updates made since the prior published version. Comprehensive Computer-Based Training (CBT) modules covering all aspects of Section 111 reporting based on the GHP User Guide can be found on the GHP Training Material page.

Frequently, CMS will publish new guidance in the form of an alert on the GHP Alerts page. These alerts are incorporated into subsequent versions of the GHP User Guide and supersede information published in the GHP User Guide. To obtain the most up to date information and requirements related to Section 111 reporting, be sure to review not only the GHP User Guide, but also any pertinent alerts published after the current version of the GHP User Guide.
