Provider Compliance – Duplicate Claims Will Not be Paid

Medicare is reminding healthcare providers that it will not pay duplicate claims for the same service encounter. Medicare (and other payers for that matter) will pay the first claim that is approved and deny subsequent claims for the same service as duplicates. Although Medicare is prohibited by law from paying claims immediately, over 90 percent of clean, payable claims are paid within 30 days. Refer to the Medicare Quarterly Provider Compliance Newsletter [Volume 5, Issue 2] for more information.
