Taking Kaiser Business Rep test

What does TPL mean?

I answered the questions Third party Liability?
Not sure what it means on the medical side of Insurance billing?

Thanks very much.

Denise,

Yes - TPL does stand for Third Part Liability. The CMS(Centers for Medicare & Medicaid) defines TPL as:

"...the legal obligation of third parties, i.e., certain individuals, entities, or programs, to pay all or part of the expenditures for medical assistance furnished under a State plan."

They have a pretty extensive discussion on it here.

Hope this helps - Thanks,

Gina
