Best Answer

A payer of last resort is an entity that pays after any other primary programs have been billed. For instance, after a primary insurance company, a secondary or even tertiary program can come in and pay the last of a bill. In some cases, the patient can no longer be billed for services after this payer has paid or denied payment.
