it's part of the requirements of the federal medicare program and is used the same way in all states:
the future medical benefit portion of a settlement is put in a trust account to pay for future work comp treatments.
you can find out more here

Great infomation and sites...you should be an Attorney! My attorney still has not responded since November. Are there any options other than the Medicare set-aside?

yes
don't buyout the medical; keep it with the comp carrier.

Can you do this in Louisiana?
I did not think keeping the medical open instead of a MSA was possible.
Where can I find out if open medical is a option in Louisiana when settling?
Thanks

Thank you so very, very much for all the information you have shared! It will be a great help. I don't think you can release your medical in Louisiana, but I'm not sure.
