ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the used of Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) statute by the U.S. federal government to improve the fiscal integrity of the Medicare program. He says that Medicare encountered exorbitant financial losses due to fraud and deceptive implementation of the MSP. He notes that the Congress enacted the MSP as part of the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1980 in which the Medicare became the secondary payer to other sources of payment including automobile insurance.
