5 Medicare Crossover Claim Defined
The term, “crossover claim” applies when a member has Medicare as the primary insurance, and: The Medicare coverage is from traditional Medicare, not one of the Medicare Replacement (or Medicare HMO) plans Medicare issued a payment of any amount, or the entire payment was applied to the deductible A claim is not a crossover claim when: The member’s primary insurance is not traditional Medicare Medicare denied the entire claim It is a Medicare benefit exhaust claim

6 Why Claims Do Not Automatically Cross Over
Following are some of the reasons why claims fail to cross over from Medicare automatically: NPI one-to-one match cannot be accomplished The Medicare intermediary is not National Government Services (NGS) or is not an intermediary that has a partnership agreement with HP Ambulatory surgical center (ASC) claims billed to Medicare on a CMS-1500 claim form with the SG modifier Data errors on the crossover file Examples include incorrect Social Security number (SSN) or spelling of member name

7 Claim Filing Limit The standard filing limit for Medicaid claims is one year from the date of service Crossover claims are not subject to the one-year filing limit Crossover claims may be submitted and processed irrespective of the age of the claim

8 Claims Partially Paid by Medicare
When Medicare allows only some of the services on a nonsurgical outpatient claim: Only the Medicare-allowed services apply to crossover logic These services should be billed to Medicaid separately from the Medicare- denied services Providers should not send the Medicare Remittance Notice (MRN) to Medicaid when billing for services Medicare has paid Only the Medicare-allowed services are exempt from the one- year filing limit Services denied by Medicare are subject to the one-year filing limit These services should be billed separately to Medicaid with a copy of the MRN
