Notice for claims with a date of service or discharge on or after April 1, 2013:
The federal budget sequester of 2013 ("sequestration") enacted by the Budget Control Act of 2011 and revised by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, has generally reduced the Medicare Paid Amount by 2 percent beginning with claims with a date of service or discharge on or after April 1, 2013. The 2 percent sequestration reduction is calculated after member cost-sharing, which means that as the beneficiary, your payments toward deductibles and coinsurance have not been reduced.
If you have out-of-network unassigned claims — Out-of-network providers filing unassigned claims collect the full payment amount from the beneficiary. Medicare's reimbursement to beneficiaries for unassigned claims is subject to the 2 percent reduction; resulting in 2 percent less in the reimbursement to beneficiaries for un-assigned claims.
If you have assigned claims — For assigned claims the beneficiary is responsible for beneficiary cost-sharing. Providers collect additional amounts directly from Medicare.
You are encouraged to discuss the impact of sequestration on Medicare's reimbursement with your out-of-network physicians, practitioners, and suppliers who bill claims on an unassigned basis.
