What happens to my Medicare coverage if I have other insurance coverage?
If you have other insurance — such as homeowners, commercial plan, auto, group health (under certain conditions), Worker’s Compensation or Black Lung benefits — that plan pays health bills first. Medicare pays out second and is referred to as the secondary payer. If there is no current primary insurance listed on your “Primary Insurance” tab (found in the “Plans and Coverage” section), then Medicare is your primary insurance plan.
