Blackburn Group, Inc. MSA and MMSEA Section 111 Legal Cases - Seger v. Tank Connection LLC, 8:08 CV 75, 2010 WL 16652353 (D. NE., April 22, 2010)
This case involves a Responsible Reporting Entity (RRE) that requested that the plaintiff produce his social security number and other information so that the RRE could use the Section 111 Query Process system to determine Medicare status. However, the plaintiff refused to provide this information citing privacy and other concerns.
The court ordered the plaintiff to release his social security number and the other detailed information requested by the RRE to resolve this matter with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In reaching its decision, the court found that the requested information was important in resolving the matter under the new reporting mandates imposed under MMSEA Section 111.
