Provider Web Portal Quick Guide – Submitting a Claim with Other Insurance or Medicare Crossover Information

Last updated: 10/01/2020
 

This Quick Guide covers when and how to enter other insurance information (Third-Party Liability) or Medicare crossover information.

Other insurance information should be entered on claims with Third-Party Liability (TPL)/commercial insurance. For claims billed to Medicare, provide the Medicare crossover information (see description below).

Medicare crossover information should be entered on any claim that was billed to Medicare first. The term "Crossover claim" may refer to a claim that is directly from Medicare (and has since "crossed over" to Health First Colorado [Colorado’s Medicaid Program] for processing) or a provider-initiated claim (submitted via the Provider Web Portal, batch or paper) that contains Medicare claim information. A crossover claim does not necessarily have to come directly from Medicare. Medicare Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) Co-pays should be treated like original Medicare Coinsurance. Enter the total of Medicare Coinsurance + Medicare Co-pay amount into the Co-insurance Amount field under the Medicare Crossover Details section of the claim.

From the list below, identify the example below which most closely matches your claim, then proceed to the appropriate page for instructions. The sample screens shown in this guide may vary depending on claim information.

The Billing Provider ID will be used for claims payment. If the Billing Provider ID is a National Provider Identifier (NPI), the Web Portal automatically selects the NPI that is effective on the "From Date" in the Service Details section or the from date of the "Covered Dates" in the Claim Information section and inserts that NPI into the "Billing Provider ID" field during Submit Claim: Step 3.

Completion of the Service Facility Provider ID/Service Facility Provider Location ID is conditional. If a provider has the same provider type for multiple enrolled, service locations, the provider should use the unique NPI in the Billing Provider ID field. The provider may use the unique NPI in the Service Facility ID field if they choose. If the NPI for the billing provider is different than the location that the service was rendered, the Service Facility ID/Service Facility Provider Location ID field must be completed.
