You should or you customer WILL be PISSED for having to do the leg work of getting the information of what the primary paid and getting it to their secondary.

Yes they will have to accept payment from the secondary insurance, however they will have to bill the primary provider first. What ever the primary insurance does not cover should be covered by the secondary insurance. However, it will depend on the service being provided and the contracted amount that each insurance has agreed to pay. If the primary pays more than the secondary would have paid -there may be a refund due. However, there may be co-pays and deductibles to be met with both insurance policies. There could also be write downs--- you should only pay the lesser amount the provider may have to take a loss if one insurance has a lower contracted amount

Often, a person will have "primary" insurance and "secondary" insurance. For example, if you have insurance through your job, and your husband has insurance through his job, then your primary insurance will be the one through your job, and your secondary insurance will be the one through your husband's job. Also, your husband's insurance through his job will be his primary, and yours through your job will be his secondary. There can be some exceptions to this though. For example, if you were married, had a child, then divorced and remarried (retaining custody of the child), and both your ex and current husbands have insurance through work, then the one who's birthday is first is considered the "primary" insurance, and the other is the "secondary" insurance. But there will still be a deductible with each one that has to be met before either one will pay.

Depends on the doctors office billing procedures. For more details visit yes, your secondary insurance should cover this amount if you have reached your deductible with them. Normally, if the primary insurance applies a deductible or co-insurance/co-pay and you have not met your deductible on your secondary policy, depending on your policy they may apply the remaining balance to your deductible. Normally after the deductible is met on the secondary ins. they pay 100% of your remaining balance.

The concept of a "primary policy" can best be understood when there exist two or more insurance policies that arguably provide coverage for the same occurrence. The "primary insurance" is the policy that is first responsible for the payment of claims. A good example might be when a state requires that the owner of a motor vehicle to maintain what of often called "personal injury protection coverage" (a/k/a "no fault coverage"). That type of insurance pays a percentage of the injured insured's medical expenses and/or lost wages regardless of fault for the collision. If the injured insured also has major medical or hospitalization insurance, a primary/secondary insurance scenario develops. State statutory law or interpretative case law will dictate which is primary and which is secondary, but typically, the coverage specific to the occurrence (e.g. the auto-related insurance) will be primary until benefits are exhausted. Primary/secondary insurance situations may also develop when insurance is required to be maintained by the terms of a contract between two or more parties. Often, the contract specifies which (or whose) insurance will be primary.

no that is why they are classified as SECONDary consumers

It really depends on the plans but most plans use the date of birth rule. Who ever's birthday is first would be the company that pays primary, then the later birthday would be secondary.

If the provider exceeds timely filing limits with the insurance carrier the provider cannot bill the patient. The provider must have a participating contract with the insurance carrier also.

Having the same insurance company twice, as a primary and secondary, means you are paying twice for the same insurance policy. They probably will not cover the same thing twice, or they may treat it as two different policies and may treat it that way. If they were two different policies, The primary would deal with any deductible and copay before fulfilling its contractual obligation and so would the secondary policy depending on the wording of the contract. Unless there is no deductible and copay, or if one policy covers the deductible/copy of the other, there will still be a balance you owe. There is also the situation where your medical provider will not accept or fully participate in your insurance policy, in which case you may owe the difference between the doctors bling amount and what was paid by the insurance(s).

A secondary beneficiary is a person who would receive the benefits of a life insurance policy or retirement plan in the event that the insured person dies and the primary beneficiary has also passed away. Then, the secondary beneficiary would receive the benefits.

Yes. A secondary beneficiary only becomes beneficiary if the primary beneficiary dies before the insured. Say the insured and primary beneficiary are involved in a fatal auto accident but the insured dies an hour before the primary beneficiary. The insurance proceeds would not go to the secondary beneficiary but to the estate of the primary beneficiary. If the primary beneficiary dies an hour before the insured then the secondary beneficiary receives the proceeds. If an insured wants both to receive monies they can name more than one person as primary beneficiary and in what percentage for each person. They could also leave it to their estate and handle distribution by a will.

It depends on the ecosystem, but a general statement could be: secondary consumers consume the primary consumers, who consume the primary producers. If the secondary consumers are omnivores, they can also be a part of the second (primary consumer) and third (secondary consumer) trophic levels.

yes, but it isn't always done automatically. You need to make sure you also follow up.

Secondary. It preys on organisms, but is also preyed on.

A bobcat is a secondary consumer. A secondary consumer is also known as a carnivore, it is an animal that eats primary consumers (herbivores). Bobcats mostly consume rabbits and hares.

Primary consumers are also known as herbivores and eat producers (plants). Secondary consumers are also known as carnivores and eat primary consumers. For example: Grass is a producer. Rabbits eat grass, making them primary consumers. Foxes eat rabbits, making them secondary consumers.

This will vary from insurance provider to insurance provider, it will also depend on your policy and the level of coverage that you have. You should always check with your dentist and insurance to ensure procedures are covered before going through with them.
