Practice for the Medcial Admin Assistant certification exam


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The birthday rule is when an individual is covered by two insurance policies, the insurance plan of the policyholder whose birthday comes first in the calendar year becomes the primary insurance.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the birthday rule is a common practice in the insurance industry. When an individual is covered by multiple insurance policies, the policyholder whose birthday comes first in the calendar year is considered the primary insurance. This means that their insurance plan will be the first to cover any medical expenses, while the secondary insurance will cover the remaining costs. This rule helps determine the order in which insurance policies should be billed and ensures that there is no confusion or overlap in coverage. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Managed care has high out of pocket costs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Managed care has high out of pocket costs" is false. Managed care plans typically have lower out of pocket costs compared to other types of health insurance plans. Managed care plans often have co-pays for doctor visits and prescriptions, and they may also have deductibles and co-insurance. However, these costs are generally lower and more predictable compared to plans with higher out of pocket costs, such as fee-for-service plans.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Group coverages are more expensive because they cover a larger group of individuals.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Group coverages are not necessarily more expensive just because they cover a larger group of individuals. The cost of insurance depends on various factors such as the type of coverage, the level of risk associated with the group, and the specific terms and conditions of the policy. While it is possible for group coverages to be more expensive due to the larger number of individuals covered, this is not always the case. Other factors can also influence the cost of group coverages, such as the negotiating power of the group or the specific benefits and coverage limits included in the policy. Therefore, the statement that group coverages are more expensive solely because they cover a larger group is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Having an authorization from the insuarance company guarantees that the provider will be paid

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Having an authorization from the insurance company does not guarantee that the provider will be paid. While authorization is typically required for insurance companies to cover the cost of certain medical services, it does not guarantee payment. The insurance company may still deny the claim or have certain limitations on coverage, such as deductibles or co-pays, which the provider may not be fully reimbursed for. Therefore, having authorization does not ensure payment from the insurance company.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    There is no difference if a patient is in or out of network

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "There is no difference if a patient is in or out of network" is false. Being in or out of network can have significant differences in terms of cost, coverage, and access to healthcare providers. In-network providers have negotiated rates with insurance companies, resulting in lower out-of-pocket costs for patients. Out-of-network providers, on the other hand, may not be covered by insurance or may require higher deductibles and co-pays. Additionally, being in-network ensures that patients have access to a wider network of healthcare providers and facilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    UCR formula is used by insurance companies to determine the fee schedule

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The UCR formula, also known as Usual, Customary, and Reasonable formula, is indeed used by insurance companies to determine the fee schedule. This formula helps insurance companies determine the maximum amount they will reimburse for a particular medical service or procedure based on what is considered usual, customary, and reasonable in a specific geographic area. By using this formula, insurance companies can establish a standard fee schedule that aligns with the prevailing costs in a given area.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Medicaid is federal and state health insurance

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that provides health insurance to low-income individuals and families. It is funded by both the federal government and individual states, with the federal government setting basic guidelines and each state having the flexibility to determine eligibility criteria and benefits within those guidelines. Therefore, Medicaid can be considered as both federal and state health insurance.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The patient is responsible for the premium, co-pay and deductible

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because in most healthcare insurance plans, the patient is responsible for paying the premium, which is the amount they pay regularly to maintain the insurance coverage. Additionally, the patient is also responsible for paying the co-pay, which is a fixed amount they pay for each healthcare service or medication, and the deductible, which is the amount they must pay out of pocket before the insurance coverage kicks in. Therefore, the patient bears the financial responsibility for these expenses.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If the patient is covered under more than one insurance, they can chosse which insurance can be billed first

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the patient cannot choose which insurance can be billed first if they are covered under more than one insurance. The order in which the insurance companies are billed is determined by a process called coordination of benefits, which follows specific rules and guidelines set by the insurance companies. The primary insurance is typically billed first, followed by the secondary insurance, if applicable. The patient does not have the authority to decide the billing order.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    More than one fee scheduled can be utilized in the office for billing

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because in an office setting, it is possible to have multiple fee schedules that can be used for billing purposes. This allows for flexibility in charging different fees for different services or for different groups of patients. By having multiple fee schedules, the office can accurately and efficiently bill patients based on the specific services they receive, ensuring that the correct fees are applied.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Disability policies can be issued as short term, mid term and long term

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Disability policies can be issued as short term, mid term, and long term. This statement is false. Disability policies are typically categorized based on the duration of coverage they provide. Short-term disability policies usually provide coverage for a few months, while mid-term policies may cover a longer period, such as a year. Long-term disability policies, on the other hand, provide coverage for an extended period, often until retirement age. Therefore, disability policies can indeed be issued as short term, mid term, and long term.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Electronic claim processing uses an 837P format for billing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Electronic claim processing commonly uses the 837P format for billing. This format is specifically designed for professional healthcare providers to submit claims electronically. It includes all the necessary information such as patient demographics, diagnosis codes, procedure codes, and insurance information. Using the 837P format streamlines the billing process, reduces errors, and allows for faster claim processing and reimbursement. Hence, the statement "Electronic claim processing uses an 837P format for billing" is true.
