    This is absurd. You really out to actually read the law before you start spouting ridiculous statements. For example: “if MSA accounts are not set up but should have been, the attorney may face fines of $1000 per day, per claim.” Those $1,000 a day fines–actually up to $1,000 a day–are for willful and contumacious failure to REPORT a claim under Section 111 of the MMSEA (and those fines are simply authorized by statute but CMS has not implemented any rules or levied any such fines). It has NOTHING to do with MSAs. There are at least a dozen other misstatements in your article. Frankly, it’s so bad it ought to be retracted immediately.
