As Medicare Part C (replacement plans) become more popular, it is necessary for clinics to have a solid understanding of the ins & outs of these plan types. This is NOT the type of plan to take a ‘bill first, ask later’ approach. Just like traditional Medicare, these plans are highly regulated. Even if the provider is out of network with Medicare Advantage plans in the area, there are important rules that must be followed, prior to rendering treatment to these beneficiaries.
This tutorial titled Medicare Part C- The Advantage Plans will provide an overview of the variety of Medicare Advantage plan types as well as important rules you must follow to be compliant.
