Some Common Billing Questions...

 

 

 

What is a deductible and coinsurance?

 

In an insurance policy, the deductible is the amount of expenses that must be paid out of pocket before an insurer will pay any expenses. Once a deductible has been met, many plans still have a coinsurance or copayment amount which is the patient's responsibility.

 

 

What is an out-of-pocket maximum?

 

This is a predetermined limited amount of money that an individual must pay, before an insurance company will pay 100 percent for an individual’s health care expenses. Frequently, this exceeds the deductible amount.

 

 

How do I know what my benefits include?

 

We encourage our patients to contact their insurance companies and become familiar with their plan benefits. Each policy is different and we cannot quote insurance benefits. However, for special procedures that require pre-authorization we will work with your insurance company to obtain approval.
