Claims Filing

Illinois Medicaid Requirement:

IL Medicaid requires the primary 3-digit TPL legacy code to be submitted with the appropriate 2-digit status code when filing secondary to Medicaid. To accomplish this, the Legacy TPL code for the primary insurance must be obtained from IL Medicaid and input on the Primary policy in the Payer Setup (Support>General>Payer Setup. On the Billing Page, you will input the Legacy Medicaid Secondary TPL Code in the Electronic Claims Options section. Save your change. If you have a claim that is ready to file secondary to Medicaid, you will then select the appropriate status code for your claim.

Payment Posting

Manual Payment Posting:

Users now have the ability to post from any payer that is linked to a claim regardless of the filing sequence. For example, a claim was filed to Medicare. Medicare submits EOB via cross=over to AARP for supplement consideration. Medicare holds their payment, but AARP sends their remittance before the primary payer: Medicare. You now have the ability to simply go in and post your secondary payment without having to manipulate the filing status.
