The live seminar covered the two most important federal aspects of workers’ compensation practice: Social Security Disability Offsets and the Medicare Secondary Payer Statute. He discussed the necessary steps to take to minimize the Social Security offset that can occur when a workers’ compensation case is settled. The conference also provided a comprehensive analysis of the application of the Medicare Secondary Payer Statute to workers’ compensation settlements.
