Medicare is a federal health insurance program that primarily serves individuals aged 65 and older, as well as some younger people with disabilities. As one of the largest payers in the healthcare industry, Medicare billing plays a significant role in how providers are reimbursed for the services they render to eligible beneficiaries.
But Medicare billing isn’t just about submitting a bill and waiting for payment. It involves navigating a complex system of codes, forms, and regulations that must be followed to ensure accurate reimbursement. Unlike other insurance plans, Medicare has specific billing requirements that providers must adhere to in order to avoid claim denials and payment delays.
