Medicaid secondary & submitting primary carrier ID

Post by SalJim71 » Tue Oct 24, 2017 1:37 pm

When Medicaid is secondary I need to submit the carrier ID for the primary insurance. Where in Medisoft do I enter that code?

In Medisoft go to Lists -> Insurance -> Carriers and then double-click the primary insurance carrier record you have setup. Go to EDI/Eligibility tab and enter the Claims Payer ID provided by your clearinghouse into the Claims Payer ID field in the Secondary Receiver frame. If it is all the same clearinghouse, then it will probably match the corresponding field in the Primary Receiver frame.

I didn't mean the payer ID, it's the carrier ID. NJ Medicaid requires the primary insurance's # (for BCBS of NJ it's 001). On a paper claim it would go in box 10d, where in Medisoft would I enter it?
