Title: Billing Medicare as secondary
Post by: joshep on January 08, 2009, 11:29:57 AM
Hi,

I'm having problems billing Medicare as a secondary.  Medicare will not except the claim on paper with the EOB from the primary insurance so I've sent it as a secondary through the clearinghouse-but it is always rejected.   Has anyone had success with this process and could you share with me the BIG secret to getting this right.

Thanks

What kind of rejection code are you getting????

I would contact your electronic vendor and describe the problem to them.  It sounds like your electronics aren't set up correctly (the right info in the right loops/segments in the 837 file).  They will probably need to see your rejection report that you receive.
