I had recently asked about the potential settling of future lifetime medical benefits with the IC. I appreciate the responses received.
I will be relocating outside of the USA in the near future. Keeping this in mind, would it be best to negotiate the MSA being funded as a lump sum rather than an annuity? I realize this would be to the benefit of the IC, however I will have no need for the MSA if I am not residing within the USA, correct?
Any ideas as to whether or not the MSA should proceed according to the guidelines set forth by CMS/Medicare given the future circumstances?
I'm guessing to fund the MSA as a lump sum would save the IC roughly 25% - 50% over the value of an annuity.
