PREVIEW COURSE

Description

This module explores coordination of benefits rules for military and non-employer insurance, as well as other types of insurance a beneficiary may have. We will address TRICARE, TRICARE for Life, and Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, and see how each coordinates—or does not coordinate—with Medicare. This module also includes discussions of liability insurance, no-fault insurance, and workers’ compensation, including information about how all of these pay primary or secondary to Medicare. We will also discuss what happens when Medicare makes a conditional payment and the steps involved in the conditional payment recovery process. Finally, we will take a look at long-term care insurance, dental insurance, and Health Insurance Marketplace plans and what must happen when an individual with Marketplace coverage becomes Medicare-eligible.
