A provider shall comply with the Medicare billing requirements in items A and B.
A provider who is authorized to participate in Medicare shall bill Medicare before billing medical assistance for services covered by Medicare unless the provider has reason to believe that a service covered by Medicare will not be eligible for payment. A provider shall not be required to take an action that may jeopardize the limitation on liability under Medicare as specified in Code of Federal Regulations, title 42, section 405.195. However, the provider must document that, because of recent claim experiences with Medicare or because of written communication from Medicare, coverage is not available.
A provider specified in item A shall accept Medicare assignment if the medical assistance payment rate for the service to the recipient is at the same rate or less than the Medicare payment.
