Where Do We Stand On the Tenth Anniversary of the Medicare Secondary Payer Industry

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Patel Memo, the memo that launched the Medicare Secondary Payer industry. We are forced to look back over the past decade and recognize just how far we have come.

The Patel memo resulted in a lot of frenzy and confusion, with attorneys and many others in the property and casualty industry coming to believe that CMS approval was required by law, while others, such as Jennifer C. Jordan, Esq., General Counsel at MEDVAL, found the program was virtually unsubstantiated by law or regulation, and existed only in a series of CMS interoffice memorandum posted on the Internet.
