As co-chair of the firm's Medicare Set-Aside Practice Group and Medicare counsel to numerous clients from coast to coast, Ross is well-versed in the complex Medicare issues that can arise in both workers' compensation and liability cases. He handles Medicare set-aside cases from start to finish, providing a single point of contact and advice throughout the pendency of each case. Ross assists clients with Medicare set-aside allocations for workers’ compensation and liability cases, conditional payment searches, submissions to Medicare for set aside approval, and preparing Medicare language for settlement documents. In addition, his attendance at mediations can help effectively settle cases.

In addition to his workers’ compensation and Medicare practice, Ross also handles Federal Black Lung matters for clients.
