Around the same time Medicare brought in a new CRC contractor, a new Workers’ Compensation Review Contractor (WCRC) was also brought on board.  Capitol Bridge won the contract to provide services to Medicare as WCRC, and took over on March 19, 2018.  As with previous review contractors, their primary job will be to review and approve workers’ compensation Medicare Set-Aside submissions through CMS.

Capitol Bridge has promised that the review, decision making processes, and all review timeframes will remain the same.  They anticipate review of a properly submitted WCMSA should be complete within 20 days.  (This timeframe is always extended if they seek additional “development” material not initially submitted with the file, but promise that they will notify the parties of the need for this additional information within 10 days of submission.)  WCMSA proposals may continue to be submitted via the online portal or by mail to the Oklahoma City address.  For customer service inquiries they have provided a phone number (833)295-3773 and email  Thus far we are not finding any hold-up in the review process.
