Verifying Eligibility


Best answers
Does anyone know how to verify a patient's Medicare eligibility when you are not a provider? I used to work in a medical practice and knew of several ways, all of which required a PTAN and/or NPI when doing so. I recently went to work in a law firm and am trying to verify Medicare info on some clients, but everything I try requires a PTAN or NPI number when registering. Unfortunately, the clients themselves do not know or understand their insurance coverage.
