Patients have no responsibility to submit claims to Medicare, according to eHealth Medicare. This task falls entirely on providers. The website for eHealth Medicare hosts a video that explains the issue in more detail, titled "How Do I Submit a Claim to Medicare?"
Although patients are not required to submit claims to Medicare, the situation is different for health care providers, including doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies, says eHealth Medicare.
MedicalBillingandCoding.org has an online video that gives providers a brief introduction to the process of billing Medicare and Medicaid. Billing Medicare and Medicaid is one of the most complicated but important tasks a medical biller assumes, according to MB&CC. Detailed videos on medical billing are accessible by clicking the Medical Billing Training tab on the home page of the organization's website.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services explains that its Medical Learning Network exists to provide health care professionals with the information necessary to properly submit claims for services provided under these two programs. The CMS Medical Learning Network training material is available by navigating to CMS.gov, clicking on the Outreach & Education tab, and then clicking on the Get Training link. Among other resources, MLN offers web-based training and multimedia presentations, says CMS. Some MLN resources are immediately accessible. Other resources, including MLN web-based training, require registration, which is free.
