MEDICARE and MEDICAID, et al SECONDARY PAYER ACT
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
As one of the United States Courts of Appeal recently observed, the Medicare Secondary Payer Act “is not a model of clarity. Yet, it does clearly provide that, where there is some entity, other than Medicare, obligated to pay for an item or service, that entity shall pay first and Medicare shall pay the excess.” CMS is constantly changing its interpretation of the U.S. Code, the Code of Federal Regulations, and in general how to protect Medicare’s interest.
