Smart Act / Medicare Liens

On January 10, 2013, President Obama signed into law the Smart Act. The goal of the Smart Act is to improve efficiencies in the Medicare Secondary Payer system (MSP). The link below is an excellent synopsis of the key provisions of the act as outlined by The Garretson Lien Resolution Group. The Federal Government has nine (9) months (October 10, 2013) from the date of enactment to implement the key provisions of the Smart Act.
