Workers Comp, BC/BS and Medicare
#12
Interesting legal article on ACA & settling your comp claim
https://www.lexisnexis.com/legalnewsroom...ected=true

The argument follows that since, under the ACA, health care insurers must now provide coverage without restrictions as to pre-existing conditions, this should be a boon to WC settlements. That is to say that following the settling of the WC case, the claimant can merely secure an ACA policy—after all, everyone is required to be insured anyway—and have the future care paid out as it is rendered. With a major obstacle to settlement removed, everyone wins, right?

So it looks like those workers with ACA coverage can pocket the medical portion of their comp settlement and still get the wok injury treated.
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information.........
