15. Why do I have to give you information about other insurance if I have Medicare coverage?

Medicare requires hospitals to bill any health plan that could have responsibility for your expenses before Medicare is billed. In fact, Medicare will not allow Edward to file a claim for payment until the other insurer (or primary payer) has paid or denied the claim. For example, if you were injured in a car accident, at your worksite, or on someone else's property, it is the provider's responsibility to make sure your claims are filed appropriately to the accident insurance plan before it is submitted to Medicare. Consequently, Edward needs to have information about the insurance coverage you have.
