What To Charge When Medicare is a Secondary Payer

The advent of more entrepreneurial opportunities for physicians will cause them to wonder how to deal with Medicare patients when Medicare is the secondary payer. For instance, physicians treating Medicare patients under a Letter of Protection (LOP) need to know how to deal with the Medicare secondary payer issue.
The Department of Health and Human Services, back in 1996, issued a memorandum addressing the issues comprehensively. The memo is available on our website (www.floridahealthcarelawfirm.com), and the only piece of information missing is the requirement that Medicare claims be submitted within twelve (12) months from the date of service.
