Can Secondary Insurance not pay anything on claim if Medicare pays more on claim than they would if they were primary?

Yes, If medicare pays more than the secondary insurance allows

for a charge, the secondary insurance pays nothing. The balance is

written off to a contractual allowance that is agreed upon between

the provider of service and the insurance company via contract.
