Who pays first

Postby pmaxwell » Thu Apr 12, 2012 1:47 pm

Each insurance provider is called a “payer.” If you have Medicare AND other health insurance or coverage, there are rules to determine which payer should pay your healthcare bills first. Managing multiple systems of benefits is complex. Use this guide http://www.medicare.gov/publications/pubs/pdf/02179.pdf compiled by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to better understand how Medicare works in conjunction with other types of coverage. Always make sure to tell your healthcare provider about all of your insurance and coverage plans to make sure your bills are sent to the right payer to avoid delays.
