Submitting Medicare Part B Claims for Railroad Retirement Beneficiaries
(Posted March 9, 2004)
Question 403: My mother-in-law has Medicare through Railroad Retirement. Last November she had an auto accident. Her medical payments limit was only $1,000 as the driver. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital-- that charge alone was $800. After the auto insurance company makes its payments, can we submit the remaining medical bills to the Railroad Retirement Board?
Answer: You should submit the unpaid bills to the Railroad Retirement Part B Medicare carrier, Palmetto GBA, PO Box 548, Auguasta GA 30999-- not to the Railroad Retirement Board.
