Medicare is never automatically the primary insurance carrier for any state, you must determine what coverage the patient has and determine who is the primary carrier.

Let's say for example the patient has a working spouse with crediable coverage through Cigna, in this instance the patient's primary carrier would be Cigna and Medicare would be secondary.
