A regional commercial property and casualty insurer required advocacy and representation efforts for approximately 10 years of federal legislation under consideration by Congress. The legislation would streamline the process by which the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reviews workers’ compensation settlements to ensure their future interests are protected, including through the participation in a coalition.
Faegre Baker Daniels represented the insurer before the Congressional Budget Office to discuss how the office would determine the proposal's cost. FaegreBD also represented the company before CMS, and across Capitol Hill, to discuss their thoughts on the proposed changes to the process. FaegreBD secured lead Democrat sponsors in the House and the Senate for legislation and secured opportunities for the client to provide a Capitol Hill briefing to committee staffers.
