How is your chiropractic practice handling coordination of benefits?
Coordination of benefits is a way to figure out who pays first when 2 or more health insurance plans are responsible for paying the same insurance claim.
Using coordination of benefits when processing insurance claims help identify the primary payer’s obligations as well as deciding the secondary payer’s portion.
It is important to collect and verify the secondary and primary insurer information at each visit to reduce coordination of benefits worries.
It is also essential to be familiar with payer guidelines and payment plans before sending the claims to the primary payer.
NOTE: The secondary payer often requires a copy of the primary payer’s ‘Explanation of Benefits’ before processing and settling a claim.
