Medicare Secondary claims to be submitted electronically

Medicare Secondary Payor claims must be submitted electronically to Medicare unless your office fits the following exceptions:

*Small Provider with 9 or fewer full time employees
* Roster billing of mass immunizations covered by Medicare
* Claims for payment under Medicare demonstration projects when information is required that cannot be submitted electronically
* Claims where Medicare is the tertiary payer to two (or more) primary payers; e.g., Medicare is the third payer (not to be confused with claims where Medicare is the secondary payer)
* Dental claims to Medicare.

Remember when submitting claims electronically to Medicare or other insurance carriers your office will need to be well versed on Medicare claim adjustment Reason Codes.

I would suggest that you visit one of my other blogs that details these steps in full:
Medicare Insurance Claim Adjustment Reason Codes

If your office has any questions on MSP codes please post a log and I would be happy to assist.
