Back  RFI # 474: Claim Splitting and COB

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Ryan Wexler


It is unclear how you implement cob when considering claim splitting with claim level adjustments. Let’s say you are sending cob to a tertiary. The primary sent you back an 835 with claim level adjustments for 4 service lines. The secondary split the claim and sends era for 2 of the service lines. When you send the cob for the claim consisting of the 2 service lines to the tertiary how can you possible report the previous payer eob data properly? The claim level adjustments from the primary payer apply to all 4 service lines, but you are now sending a claim to the tertiary only containing 2. So how are you suppose to properly communicate the data and make it balance?

In order to get the balance to work you would need to hold the claim until all 4 services lines have been processed by the secondary payer before sending to the tertiary.
