Medicare Secondary Payer Claims Increase
WPS GHA has announced that Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) claims has seen an increase in the level of development due to MSP records not existing. Before you submit a claim where Medicare is the secondary payer, make sure to verify the patient's eligibility MSP file. If the patient does not have a MSP record or the MSP record is not active, then work with the Benefit Coordination & Recovery Contract at 855-798-2627 to update the file before submitting the claim.
Remember our first step is to go back to the patient or follow the guidance in the MLN Matters article SE 1416.
