Physician Billing Tips  

 
1.  If a patient's Medicaid is secondary to a private insurance that is primary, is it necessary to obtain a TAN number to bill Medicaid since Medicaid does not pay until after the insurance paid?
Yes, if the service requires a TAN to bill Medicaid when Medicaid is primary, it is necessary to obtain a TAN when Medicaid is being billed as the secondary payer.
2.  Will providers who bill professional services using the HCFA-1500 that must submit claims before the first Thursday of the month to be paid on the second Thursday of the month, still file claims monthly? Will we still be paid only once month?
There is no change in when you submit claims. If you are a provider type that is paid monthly, you will continue to be paid monthly and should submit claims monthly.
