tracelogoRB Information About Filing Secondary Claims.

 

Secondary ClaimsAll HNS providers are required to submit secondary claims through HNS if the secondary coverage is provided by a HNS Contracted Payor.

 

At this time, secondary claims must be sent to HNS via the CMS 1500 claim and cannot be submitted via HNSConnect®. All secondary claims and claims with attachments must be mailed to HNS.

 

Please ignore the address on the member's ID card as well as any instructions you may receive when verifying benefits regarding where to submit claims. HNS instructions supersede all other instructions regarding where to submit claims.

 

 

Timely Filing.

Secondary claims must be submitted to HNS within 15 days of the date you receive the primary EOB.

 

NOTE:  You must have the original EOB from the primary carrier before you can file the secondary claim to HNS. When you file a secondary claim to HNS, please follow these guidelines: 

Generate a new CMS 1500 claim form for the same date of service including all services that were shown on the original primary claim.


1. Complete boxes 9, 9a and 9d
Note: Boxes 11d and 9, 9a and 9d must be completed on BOTH the primary and secondary claim form.

2. For NC Providers, if the claim is a secondary claim and Medicare is primary, Box 14 (Date of Current Illness) must be completed.

Staple the primary EOB to the claim form and mail to HNS
