Medicare Part B Edit Information
This page contains information on the Medicare Point of Sale edit that was added on March 1, 2003 to the Medicaid program claims processing system for pharmacy services. The edit ensures that Medicare covered drugs are not paid by Medicaid. Those services, which Kentucky Medicaid recognizes as routinely covered by Medicare, will deny if submitted first to Medicaid. Please find listed below information pertaining to the implementation and ongoing operation of that edit.
