Marcus A. Roland of the Lexington-based law firm Roland Legal has been awarded the credential of Medicare set-aside consultant certification by the International Commission on Healthcare Certification.

As defined by the commission, “the MSCC credential is designed to identify professionals who work within the workers’ compensation benefit system as either a health care professional, legal representative or insurance claims adjuster, who have achieved specific pre-approved training in Medicare set-aside trust arrangements, and have demonstrated a breadth of knowledge regarding the development and application of the Medicare set-aside trust arrangement process.”

 A Medicare set-aside is an intricate financial arrangement designed to protect the interests of Medicare or Medicaid in workers’ compensation settlements. With his designation, Roland is certified to design, submit and negotiate these arrangements.

To earn the certification, Roland completed 30 hours of training through the University of Florida, passed a pre-certification exam from the university and passed a final certification exam from the International Commission on Healthcare Certification.
