Medicare Secondary Payer Claims Processing Issues

Changes were implemented in edits related to some Medicare Secondary Payer claims in January.  Changes in these edits have resulted in delays in claim processing.  However, CMS will update this information as it becomes available.  Customer Service Representatives are not able to take any action on these claims.  There is no need to resubmit these claims.  The claims will be release once the problem is corrected.
