Electronic Coordination of Benefits For Fast Reimbursement

By JBF Medical Billing Team


Coordination of benefits in Medicare has been a benefit. Medicare does cross over. When a patient has secondary insurance Medicare as primary insurance will make payments then update the patient’s records. Going forward Medicare submits the adjusted report or correspondence along with the claim to the secondary insurance. The reports or EOB (Explanation of Benefits) show what Medicare has paid but also the patient’s responsibility. This crossover process from Medicare occurs electronically which makes it a seamless process. It saves time for JBF medical billing to do all the Gastroenterologist’s patient data entry from one report to another report or billing system. Entering information from manual paper reports is a thing of the past and electronic crossover involved in the billing process made our Gastroenterologists claims payments faster
