The purpose of Section 111 reporting is to enable CMS to pay appropriately for Medicare-covered items and services furnished to Medicare beneficiaries. Section 111 NGHP reporting of applicable liability insurance (including self-insurance), no-fault insurance, and workers’ compensation claim information helps CMS determine when other insurance coverage is primary to Medicare, meaning that it should pay for the items and services first before Medicare considers its payment responsibilities.

Reporting is accomplished by either the submission of an electronic file of liability, no-fault, and workers’ compensation claim information, where the injured party is a Medicare beneficiary, or by entry of this claim information directly into a secure Web portal, depending on the volume of data to be submitted. Upon receipt of this information, CMS checks whether the injured party associated with the claim report is a Medicare beneficiary, and determines if the other insurance is primary to Medicare. CMS then uses this information in the Medicare claims payment process and, if Medicare paid first when it should not have, uses it to seek repayment from the other insurer or the Medicare beneficiary.
