If a patient has Medicaid as either primary or secondary and asks us to
accept them as a self-pay or to waive billing the Medicaid, are we allowed
to do that? I know other insurances allow us to do this with a signed
waiver, but I didn't think this was the case w/Medicaid patients.

  • This is true in Montana. We have them sign a waiver that we are not billing Medicaid and they are then self pay. Doesn’t happen very often but it does once in awhile.

  • Why not… if you do it up front I think it’s perfectly acceptable
