Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C. (DMC) is pleased to announce that Benjamin M. Basista, Esq. has been elected President-elect of the National Alliance of Medicare Set-Aside Professionals (NAMSAP). He will lead the organization in 2016 as its President.

Mr. Basista assumes the role as Vice President after serving as chair of the organization’s legislative committee, the by-law committee, membership committee, and as a two-term board member. “I am honored to serve NAMSAP and to follow in the footsteps of a number of professionals who have been leaders in the Medicare compliance industry,” said Mr. Basista regarding his election by the board.

Basista joined DMC in May 2014 as a principal in its Medicare Compliance Group. He focuses on addressing Medicare Secondary Payer issues that arise in the resolution of workers’ compensation, general liability, and FELA claims.

A frequent lecturer on Medicare compliance, Basista is retained as national Medicare Counsel and Advisory Medicare Counsel to a number of insurance carriers, third party administrators, self-insured entities, and trade organizations and is also retained nationwide as a Medicare Set-Aside provider and Section 111 Medicare Mandatory Insurer Reporting agent.

Jeffrey T. Wiley, Esq., DMC Managing Director, remarked, “Ben's knowledge is vast and is beneficial during a time when Medicare issues are increasingly complex for our clients.”

Founded in 2005, NAMSAP is the only non-profit association exclusively addressing the issues and challenges of the Medicare Secondary Payer Statute and its impact on workers’ compensation and liability settlements. Through the voluntary efforts of its members, NAMSAP is a forum for the exchange of ideas and is a leading resource for information on Medicare compliance.
