Coordination Of Benefits Agreement National Crossover Process

This consolidation has enabled the implementation of unique identifiers (COBA IDENTIFIER) that can be assigned to each contractual and paid activity, and has created a national repository for COBA information. COBA`s business partners are issuers of a Medicare supplemental insurance policy or a public authority responsible for the management of Title XIX of the Social Security Act. They may also be a federal authority or contractor that manages and provides health care to its eligible beneficiaries, or an organization that works under a contract with a self-employed employer plan or an insurer to adjudicate rights and perform other insurance functions, including those necessary for the coordination of delivery activities. A COBA business partner does not include companies that only capture, transfer and/or translate files, for example. B clearing houses in the health sector, network service providers, data transmission services and settlement services. . . .
