Medicaid global billing

  1. Default Medicaid global billing
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a patient with BCBS as primary and Texas Medicaid as secondary.
    If Medicaid does not pay for global billing (59400), how do I file the antepartum visits with out getting denied for past timely filing for the early visits?

    The rules may change when they are the secondary payer not the primary payer. I would bill them using the 59400 with the EOB from the primary and wait to see if they deny it. These are tricky situations to figure out. Is there anything in the billing instructions from Texas Medicaid on how to bill when they are secondary? Sometimes they already have addressed this situation. The other thing that comes into play here is, if the primary has already allowed as much, or more than, what Medicaid would have as primary, then you have to write off the difference anyway. That is what happens in Washington State with a lot of the Medicaid secondary claims.

    "Texas Medicaid Provider Billing Manual...
    Medicaid-eligible clients may not be held responsible for billed charges that are in excess of the TPR(Third Party Resources)
    payment for services covered by Texas Medicaid. If the TPR(Third Party Resources) pays less than the Medicaid-allowable
    amount for covered services, the provider should submit a claim to TMHP (Texas Medicaid Health Program) for any additional allowable
    amount."
