Thread: Wrong Referring on Claim

    Question Wrong Referring on Claim

    Promo: Code Books
    Hello,

    I hope someone can help me. If we accidentally put a wrong referring provider on our report and billed it to Medicare that way, do we need to refund Medicare and submit a corrected claim? Somehow it was discovered months after the payment went through. How do I rectify this and is it required that I contact Medicare to update this information?

    Any information or direction would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!
    Amy

    Amy, Medicare has a Reopening phone line to call when clerical errors are made on claims. Try to find that phone # on your Medicare website and just make a phonecall to correct the info. It may be that nothing else will be needed and no money will be taken back.
