Medicaid third party liablity how to find any other insurance

Third Party Liability

Providers should verify whether a Medicaid recipient has other insurance prior to submitting a claim to Medicaid. Because federal Medicaid regulations require that any resources currently available to a recipient are to be considered in determining liability for payments of medical services, providers
have an obligation to investigate and report the existence of other insurance or liability to Medicaid. Cooperation is essential to the functioning of the Alabama Medicaid Program.

Verifying Other Insurance

Recipients may be covered through a variety of health insurance resources.
Please ask the recipient about the following types of insurance coverage:
