Claims Submission
« on: December 30, 2011, 09:38:19 AM »
Once the primary insurance has paid, can I submit claims to secondary insurance with different billing physicians?

The billing physician should always be the same; this is based on who saw the patient.  The same information that was submitted to the primary insurance must be submitted to the secondary.

No one has answer my question it was not too difficult.  :(
I got the answer and like to share with you guys. (Medical Billing Community)
Ans:- No, you cannot submit the same claim with different billing physicians. Once the claim is submitted to primary insurance with one billing physician, the same will be forwarded to secondary insurance irrespective of whether it is contracted with that insurance or not.

I'm confused, you say no one answered, I see one answer and you just posted another which told you the same thing. You cannot change the billing physician for the secondary, the claims should be the same. Why would you want to change the billing physician for the secondary carrier?
