What would the alternative be? Carriers had to pay providers the CSR portion, but just didn't get paid by CMS, right? I don't know who the carriers would have to give payments to, but I might be...

60-something replies, 1 related to the original question. (I guess unless you count "don't get one" as buying advice.) :lol:

I don't know how these usually work, but it seems like there could be consolidation among actuaries, along with the other areas you mentioned. But maybe not.

:eek: I haven't worked in consulting much, so I have no idea how common it is, but having to get in the office until 1 am seems extreme to me. Does it happen often where you work?
