My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: FL
the IC did 3rd party assessment , and set 500,000 for MSA. I understand that MSA is used for future medical. There is a procedure that i would like to get done for my injury that is not approved under medicare. What happens if i take money from msa to get this procedure done, and can return to work?
At this point i have already "misused" the msa funds since its a non-covered procedure.
1. Are there any legal repercussions of not using MSA funds properly, or misusing them, or buying a pair of sneakers?
2. Are there any non-legal repercussions of not using MSA properly? ie black balled from other welfare programs.
3. Same as above, but what if you close out the msa account and take the money yourself?
I understand "medicare will not cover treatment relating to that specific injury". Is there any other downside aside from 'treatment for that specific injury" not being covered by medicare?
