• Assured Life’s Medicare Supplement administrative office will not process Medicare payment estimates where Medicare has not made a final determination on the claim.

• Only the “official” Medicare remittance advice or HIPAA 835 ERA should be used for supplemental billing purposes when filing a claim – Medicare’s predetermination of benefits will not be accepted.

To verify benefits call our Medicare Supplement Customer Service at 877-223-3666. For questions on Claims call 877-223-4244.

Facts on Aging

Per the Arthritis Foundation, knee replacement surgeries have increased by 188 percent over the last 10 years in Americans aged 45–64. These surgeries are not easy procedures, either. They require weeks of recovery time, and some patients report having residual pain for as long as a year after the surgery.
