Your bill is a result of one of 3 things:
The first reason may be that your item was denied by your insurance. The decision to cover items is determined by the insurance company and not your physician. Because of this, the items your physician thinks will be covered may actually not be paid by your insurance company.
The second reason you may have received a bill is that you have a co-payment. Very few insurance companies will cover your item at 100 percent. The most common coverage percentage we see is 80%, which means you are responsible for the remaining 20%. It is your responsibility to determine these coverage percentages before you transact business with us so you will know your co-payment amounts. We are not responsible for determining this information for you.
The third possible reason you may have received a bill is because you are required to pay a deductible. Most insurance companies require you to pay a deductible balance before they begin paying their coverage percentage. If this has happened here, you may have a remaining deductible to pay toward your transaction with us.
