How do I get Medigap info to print on Medicare claims?

Post by SHIREEN » Wed Sep 28, 2016 5:25 pm

I am just starting to bill Medicare. Patients have assigned benefits to provider including secondary/Medigap insurance. I cannot get Medigap info to print in Box 9, 9a, 9d. If these are left blank Medicare will send to beneficiary to do their own secondary billing. I am filing paper claims for now. Tried entering COBA ID in EDI/MEDIGAP box. Didn't help for paper claim.
In help it says that the info is pulled from case policy 2, but that is not happening for me. Thanks.

OK, on the secondary insurance carrier's record go to the EDI/Eligibility tab and enter Y into the EDI Extra 1/Medigap field.
