tracelogoRB Reference Guide for HTA Medicare Advantage

 

HNS's contract with HealthTeam Advantage is for their Medicare Advantage Plan (sometimes called "Part C" or "MA Plan").

 

MA Plans are offered by various private companies, (such as HealthTeam Advantage,  BCBSNC, United Healthcare, etc.) that have been approved by Medicare.  

 

Individuals that join a Medicare Advantage Plan still have Medicare, but coverage is from the Medicare Advantage Plan and not original Medicare

 

The HealthTeam Advantage MA plan covers those same chiropractic services covered by original Medicare. Just as with Medicare, please be sure to include the AT modifier, as applicable.

 

 

This Quick Reference Guide provides information specific to the HealthTeam Advantage plan concerning claims, members, and policies.

 

 

 

With HealthTeam Advantage, it is NOT necessary to obtain either a referral from the member's Primary Care Provider (PCP) or prior authorization from HealthTeam Advantage.
