Competitive Bidding Program & other insurance

If you have other insurance that pays before Medicare:

  • Your other insurance may require you to use a supplier that isn't a contract supplier.
  • In this situation, Medicare may make a secondary payment to that supplier. The supplier must meet Medicare enrollment standards and be eligible to get secondary payments.

For more information, check with your benefits administrator, insurance company, or your plan provider.
