Q. Can an ambulance provider submit a claim even if they can’t obtain the beneficiary’s signature?
A. Yes. Medicare requires the signature of the beneficiary, or that of his or her representative, for both the purpose of accepting assignment and submitting a claim to Medicare. The IOM Publication 100-02, Medicare Benefit Policy Manual, Chapter 10, Section 20.1.2 lists multiple options relating to how and when authorization can be obtained and submitted.
