Garretson Resolution Group Introduces Medicare Set-Aside Decision Engine

1/16/2012: For Immediate Release

Garretson Resolution Group (GRG), headquartered in Cincinnati, OH and Charlotte, NC, announced today the launch of an innovative online-based Medicare Set-Aside (MSA) tool called the MSA Decision Engine to help simplify the first step of deciding the appropriateness of MSAs in settlements.

The MSA Decision Engine gives clients a straightforward report that states whether or not an MSA is recommended, as well as next steps to ensure proper Medicare compliance. It takes a formalized approach to each case in asking a series of questions before generating a recommendation. The interactive online tool is based on all relevant statutory, regulatory and administrative guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as relevant case law.

Matt Garretson, Founder of GRG, believes the innovative tool will revolutionize the industry. “There’s no other tool like the MSA Decision Engine in the settlement community today. It will not only help streamline the MSA decision-making process, but will ease concerns of our clients by knowing they have taken all the steps needed to satisfy Medicare’s interests and protect their clients in a quick and simple process,” stated Garretson.

The MSA Decision Engine will launch in the next several weeks and will be available 24/7/365 on GRG’s website. For more information regarding the MSA Decision Engine, or other GRG services, visit www.garretsongroup.com or call (888) 556-7526.
