Q:  How do I know if my resident is Traditional Part A or has a Medicare Advantage Plan? My confusion comes into play when the Business office admits a Medicare Part A patient into our skilled nursing facility, but then I see copies of insurance cards that say Blue Cross Anthem, Blue Shield, Secure Horizons, AARP, ect. I am sending the RUG's straight to Medicare for billing and not through to the insurance company. Is this correct?
