How Medicare works with other insurance

Medicare.gov’s website explains how Medicare works with other insurance plans. If a person has Medicare or other health insurance coverage, each of these types of coverage is known as a “payer.” When there is more than on payer, “coordination of benefits” rules will decide, which one will pay first. A “primary payer” will pay what the owe on their bills first, and then will send the rest to a “secondary payer” to pay. In some cases, there may also be a third payer.

Paying “first” means you will pay the whole bill up to the limits of the coverage. However, it does not always mean the primary payer pays first in time. If a insurance company does not play a claim promptly (usually within 120 days), a doctor or other healthcare provider may bill Medicare. Medicare could make a conditional payment to pay a bill, and then later recover any payments a primary payer should have made.
