Medicare and non-par Medicaid
« on: November 23, 2016, 07:06:34 PM »
I am going to start billing for a new client who participates in Medicare but not with Colorado Medicaid. He would like to see a patient who has both Medicare and Medicaid. I am not sure if we can bill the patient for the Medicare deductible and copay. I've gotten mixed responses and figure you all could give me a definite answer.

Contact your state Medicaid but no, most likely if you see the patient you will not be able to balance bill with Medi/Medi (Medicare/Medicaid).

Confirm that though with your state's Medicaid.
