What Happens If My Medicare Set-Aside Runs Out?

If my Medicare Set-Aside runs out of money, who pays for my continuing medical expenses that are related to my accident?

The short answer is, Medicare picks up the tab once the Medicare Set-Aside runs out.  Medicare will audit the account to make sure that the funds were properly spent caring for your accident-related expenses before it will begin to pay for additional expenses moving forward.
