Exceptions to Jurisdictional Payment (Rev. 1, 10-01-03)

Exceptions to billing the area carrier are:

• A claim for covered services performed in the United States by a legally authorized Canadian or Mexican physician is within the jurisdiction of the carrier servicing the location where the services were rendered.

• Because coverage of Part B services furnished in Canada or Mexico is contingent upon coverage of related inpatient hospital services, carriers designated to process foreign claims identified in § will receive such claims from the FI servicing the foreign hospital only after the FI has determined that the Part A services are covered. (If the request is for payment of medical services performed outside the United States by a physician or supplier whose office is located in the United States, the carrier servicing the physician’s or supplier’s office has jurisdiction. This carrier issues the denial determination and handles any resultant appeal.)

• If a claim by an individual who resides outside the United States involves both medical services performed within the United States and medical services performed outside the United States the carrier will process both segments of the claim.
