Coordination of Benefits
SC Medicaid is always the payer of last resort. When a SC Medicaid beneficiary has other insurance coverage, pharmacy providers are required to bill all other insurance carriers before billing SC Medicaid.
There are 4 fields that are required to process a Medicaid COB claim:
- Other Coverage Code (OCC) (NCPDP field # 308-C8)
- Other Payer Date (NCPDP field # 443-E8)
- (Insurance) ID Qualifier (NCPDP field # 339-6C) — Always use “99”
- Other Payer ID (NCPDP field # 340-7C)
The Carrier Code (Payer ID) to be populated in the “Other Payer ID” field may be found by clicking on one of the following links:
