    Ah, no. In most cases the MSA is put together by a contractor hired by the insurance carrier. Why would you need to do it yourself? I really don't think it is a DIY project.

    Fyi. Insurance carriers who hire "companies" to do their msa proposals do it the same way they hire their defense medical examiners and the end result is to further screw injured workers at every turn they can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's the carriers job, they are obligated to protect Medicare's interest in any settlement where the claimant is Medicare eligible.
    You are under no obligation to submit a WCMSA proposal - don't do it!!!

    While there are no statutory or regulatory provisions requiring that a WCMSA proposal be submitted to CMS for review, submission of a WCMSA proposal is a recommended process.

    Do you have a lawyer?

    Who told you "you must due this once a year"
    Something isn't right here.
    Is this a proposal or a yearly audit?

    If this is a yearly audit, simply submit your monthly bank statements from the set-aside account.
    They should should have all the dates, amounts and what for listed on them.
    If Medicare has a problem or questions, they will let you know.

    Following here for years....I was under the understanding that once a year I must submit my treatment dates, Dr.ers appointments and meds....Keep records and show what I have paid out....That's my understanding...

    I printed the sheet up and have filled it the dates of treatment and the amounts I have paid out......From reading on the WCWSA web site, it must be one year and within 30 days of anniversary date.

    So I should include my bank statement also?...I had seed money deposited then once a year I get money out of a structured settlement just for that fund..

    You have to have an interest bearing account set up for the MSA separate from other funds -it has to used exclusively for the MSA only.
    The amount in this account is determined by Medicare, they should've sent you a packet on how to setup a MSA and how to do the yearly report.

    When you first received notice from Medicare, they gave you instructions and a worksheet that explains everything, didn't you get that?
    Are you sure you have a WCMSA setup?
    Who instructed you on how to manage this MSA?
    You better talk to a lawyer and find out what you're doing, this doesn't sound right.
