If you’re treating Medicare-covered patients who are involved in accidents or injured on the job, then you may find yourself questioning when the federal program benefits apply. Medicare secondary payer (MSP) rules dictate your payment with complicated and often confusing lingo.
Medicare recently clarified when it will make conditional payments in the situation where the liability or Worker’s Compensation insurers don’t promptly pay the claims. However, at the same time, Medicare added more “hoops” that you have to jump through in order to qualify for these conditional payments. For instance, did you know if you don’t follow the program’s strict instructions for billing primary insurers, you could face claim denials?
This means, as a provider, it’s up to you to fully understand the MSP standards and procedures — especially if you expect to receive interim Medicare payments for treating injured patients.
