It depends on the policy.  Some of them require that you bill exactly as you bill to Medicare, but some follow their own guidelines so there is no straight answer. 

You just need to check with each plan as it comes up, which isn't the answer you wanted to hear I'm sure!   :)

Sorry, I wish I could tell you something more clear cut.
