What does the Primary Insurance status represent?

Sometimes, you may have other insurance that pays your health care bills first, while Medicare pays second. Medicare is the secondary payer when the following insurance is available: auto insurance, homeowners insurance, commercial insurance plans, group health plans under certain conditions, Black Lung benefits and Worker's Compensation. If no current primary insurance is listed on the Primary Insurance tab within the Plans & Coverage section, Medicare is your primary insurance.
