Q. What is Medicare secondary payer?
A. Medicare secondary payer is used when another insurer is responsible for paying health benefits first for Medicare beneficiaries. Medicare may be responsible to make a secondary payment; however, the law provides many different coverage scenarios so each one must be reviewed individually. MSP information may be found on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) website.
