Primary Claims Submission: Prescribed industry rules are followed to determine the primary insurance. Our 6 step process ensures that only clean claim is send to the payer. Once the primary pays its portion of the claim, it is then billed to the secondary insurance if the patient has it; in case of Medicare it requires electronic submission for secondary claims. If a secondary claim is submitted on paper the claim is printed onto a CMS form 1500 and a copy of the explanation of benefits (EOB) is attached.
If the patient has third insurance, tertiary payer claims are submitted if there is a balance left on a CMS form with both EOBs of primary and secondary payers.
