Billing Medicare, TRICARE And Medicaid Course

The Billing Medicare, Tricare and Medicaid course covers, in detail, insurance plans run by both federal and state governments. Medicare usually sets the standards for other insurance companies. This course will go into all four parts of Medicare (A, B, C & D) and explain requirements of Medicare billing. Also covered are the fundamentals of Medicaid insurance and TRICARE. While Medicaid is funded partially by the federal government it is run by the individual states. TRICARE covers those enrolled in the military and their families as well as retired military. Medicare participation, non-participation and opting-out are also explained. Government insurance plans such as Medicare, Tricare and Medicaid can be a little trickier than commercial insurance as there are different regulations. Medicare is extremely strict with the rules on submitting claims and the rules must be followed to insure proper payment. Fully understanding Medicare billing is extremely important in successfully submitting Medicare claims.
