Medicare Secondary Payer Information and Form

|Information Regarding Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) Statute (298KB)
|MSP Fact Sheet (389KB)
Under federal law, it is the employer's responsibility to inform its insurer or third-party administrator of proper employee counts for the purpose of determining payment priority between Medicare and another insurer. Employer size, not group health plan size, is used in determining whether the group health plan or Medicare is the primary payer. For more details please see the instructions with the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) Employer Acknowledgement Form with Instructions (above). In the absence of employer-provided employee counts, the Center for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) requires that the employer's group health plan coverage be considered primary to Medicare. To comply with this requirement BCBSTX requires employer groups to complete the Annual MSP Employer Acknowledgement Form on a yearly basis. Additional information regarding the MSP statute is available in the document titled Information Regarding the Medicare as Secondary Payer Statute.
