Why can’t you just bill Medicare?

We can but we need to show that we are established as your care providers. This can take up to 3 months just for the documentation. You would be liable in the meantime for the cost of care. Medicare Advantage or your Supplemental Part C will assist with cost depending on your diagnosis, needs, and Physicians’ approval.
