Medicare & Other Health Benefits: Who Pays First?
September 12, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
AT LIFELONG (FREE)
- Description: You’ve made sure that your doctor, hospital, and all of your other health care providers know what type of Medicare you have. Great! It’s also important to make sure they know if you have health coverage in addition to Medicare. Claims must be submitted to the correct payer in the correct sequence to avoid reimbursement delays. This class will give an overview of how Medicare coordinates with other health insurance such as retiree benefits, and who should pay your bills first.
