Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If the provider will not submit a claim voluntarily, you can file a Medicare claim yourself as a last resort. You could submit a Patient’s Request for Medicare Payment form to your Medicare carrier. You must send bills or receipts for the service along with the form. Claims submitted in this way may take much longer to process than they would if they were submitted by your provider.
The biggest problem may be that his provider does not want to wait for the claim to be processed and it wants to be paid posthaste. If that is the case, you may have to hold them off as long as you can.....or try to arrange a payment schedule you can afford until the Medicare payment comes in.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
