Post by: clarissia on January 27, 2013, 04:36:04 PM
Hello all,

I would like to get into home health care and hospice billing. Do anyone know of any forums or information sites I can visit, or have any advice? Thanks in advance.

Health care billing  are inevitable. The question is what if pay arises? And if you arenít careful, you can get yourself into big financial trouble or even ask for a emergency cash  (https://personalmoneynetwork.com/payday-loans/). Here are some basic tips for dealing effectively with Medicare, designed with cost savings in mind. For the majority of patients, who the primary is will largely depend upon whether or not youíre still employed. If you are, employee coverage is primary and Medicare is secondary.As soon as you retire and your employee health insurance coverage ends, Medicare becomes primary. Even if you have a retiree health plan, it will be secondary to Medicare. Understand that Medicare will only pay up to the coverage level. If thatís 80 percent for surgery, but your previous employer-provided health insurance covered 90 percent, donít expect Medicare to make up the difference.Health care providers are people, too, which means that they can make mistakes. Sometimes, this means billing the wrong plan, or failing to bill your secondary plan. Double check to make sure each and every one of your health care claims.

Google the Medicare/Medicaid guides.  Look up different insurance panels because some of them have different billing guides/guidelines.
