I work for a community mental health center and most of our services that we render are HCPCS and covered by our state Medicaid.
My question is: Since the services are not covered by Medicare do we bill Medicaid directly or do we still need to bill Medicare as primary?
I have asked this question several times to our MAC and received multiple answers. Can anyone help?

In Indiana we have directives from Medicaid to bill non-covered services (due to provider type) as primary to Medicaid under specified circumstances with a specific claim note. I would check with your Medicaid offices for guidance.
