Getting ahead of the settlement curve

Pre-MSA from ISO Claims Partners provides an analysis of the potential amount of the Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) for a claim. The service helps you determine if a settlement of the case is feasible — and identify issues you can address before settlement to reduce the MSA amount. So, Pre-MSA is a proactive approach to compliance and resolution.


Because of the current policy guidelines and approaches of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a proposed MSA often disrupts or derails a settlement. CMS has been demanding larger and larger allocations for future medical costs, and that has made it increasingly difficult to evaluate a claim file for settlement potential. To improve your chances of reaching a satisfactory settlement, you need an early estimate of the MSA amount. You can factor that estimate into your decisions on reserving and negotiations.

That’s where Pre-MSA comes in. We give you insight into the MSA and the tools to help settle your case.
