Accepting Assignment When Non-Par for a Medicare Advantage Plan
« on: November 18, 2014, 01:31:22 PM »
Hello,
if our providers participate with Medicare but we don't accept certain Medicare Advantage plans.  Do we still have to check the box for accepting assignment if we don't participate with a Medicare Advantage plan?

Thank you,
Jennifer

If you are submitting a claim to a Medicare Advantage Plan that you do not accept or participate with you can check "no" for accepts assignment.  Being a participating Medicare provider does not require you to accept assignment on any of the Advantage Plans.

Is a MC Advantage plan carrier obligated to accept billing for an item that would be covered by MC by any DME in good standing and accredited for that product?
