Billing for Services when Medicare is a Secondary Payer

MLN Matters Number: SE21002
Article Release Date: February 23, 2021

Don’t deny treatment, entry to a SNF or hospital, or services based on an open or closed Liability (L), No-Fault (NF) or Workers’ Compensation (WC) Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) record on the beneficiary’s Medicare file or if a claim was inappropriately denied. You must continue to see or provide services to the beneficiary.

If services relate to an open MSP accident or injury incident, first bill the other insurer as primary.
