Welcome to Medicare Exam

Randi Posted Tue 13th of May, 2014 12:44:43 PM

Can I bill a Medicare patient for their Welcome to Medicare exam if it was denied because another physician has already billed for the same exam?

Beneficiaries receive coverage for the WTM exam only once in their lifetime -- and only within the first 12 months after joining Medicare. You need to be careful and make sure the patient hasn’t already had his WTM exam, or you’ll be left with an unpaid bill
