    If no one here has the answer, I would get in touch with the state or the insurance carrier. I'm sure you can't submit the complete charges under both claim numbers since that would cause a duplicate payment (or denial).

    They may have some way they want you to split the charges between the claims, or they may choose one that they want to handle the medical expenses under.
