    Yes, the patient would be considered self-pay if they have no part B coverage. You can bill them.

    Default Private insurance
    Or, they may have private insurance. My father was covered under my mother's insurance plan long after he was eligble for Medicare. He carried ONLY part A and her private insurance coverage as long as she stayed employed. Physician statements AND facility statements went to private insurance as primary; facility statements went to Medicare as secondary.

    Hope that helps.
