Do you have Original Medicare? If yes, then according to the laws, only suppliers and doctors can file the Medicare claims for the services covered and the supplies that you get. You can find which doctors accept an assignment in your area by visiting the Medicare.gov website. In case if you have Medicare Advantage Plan, then this plan do not need to file the claims as Medicare is paying the private insurance companies specific amounts every month for this.
When Do You Need To File Claim?
You will have to file the Medicare claim rarely. A Medicare claim needs to be filed within the first 12 months of the services acquired. If you don’t file the claim within this time limit, then the Medicare will not pay its share. You can call your supplier or doctor and ask them to file your claim and if they don’t, they should call at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
