What is Coordination of Benefits?

Are you paying claims you shouldn't be?

Coordination of Benefits (COB) is a type of Payment Integrity activity for Health Insurance. COB occurs when a person has more than one health coverage at the same time. COB rules determine who the Primary Payer is and who is the Secondary Payer.
