The Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) has received inquiries about how the Mcare refund process addresses dissolved medical practices as compared to where a medical practice has merged or consolidated with another practice or has sold its assets to a health care system.
Two common questions include:
- Who is paid the refund for the coverage of a dissolved medical practice (versus the coverage of health care providers for whom the medical practice paid assessments)?
- Can a successor entity or buyer of a medical practice such as a hospital, or other entity claim or be assigned a refund for an assessment paid by the medical practice?
