All Medicare physicians, providers, and suppliers who offer services and supplies to qualified Medicare beneficiaries (QMB) may not bill QMBs for Medicare cost-sharing. This article was revised to indicate that December 8 CMS will suspend modifications to the provider remittance advice and the Medicare summary notice for QMB claims made October 2. The article was also revised to show the HETS QMB release was implemented in November 2017. Finally, the article was changed to clarify that QMBs cannot elect to pay Medicare cost-sharing but may need to pay a small Medicaid copay in certain circumstances. All other information remains the same.
