    • Can Medicare be a primary payer if other commercial insurance is on file and be filed for reimbursement first or does this fall under the rule of Medicare as Secondary Payer (MSP)?

    • What time frame does a provider have to file a claim and have it deemed payable? Are there exceptions?
    • How often are updated benefits/ eligibility cards sent to the recipients?
