    Default Medicare as Secondary Payer Allowables

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please help me!!! I need documentation!!!

    This is the situatation - Aetna was the primary insurance and they allowed $1218.18. $350 was applied to the deductible and $163.23 was applied to the coinsurance. Medicare paid $191.14 applied $135.00 towards the deductible and $48.06 towards the coninsurance. My physicians state that if the primary allowable is $1218.18 Medicare has to pay by these standards, but I spoke with a Medicare rep and they state that they have their own allowables and what I have left over needs to be written off. Does anyone know where I can get this information in writing????
