You might be wondering, will the insurance company send me a check when my medical bills are paid? If so, here are some tips to help you. First, make sure that the bill isn’t a duplicate one. Many medical providers send out aggressive bills while your insurance is still processing. Many people pay these aggressive bills without realizing that they will soon receive a lower bill. If this happens to you, be sure to ask for an itemized statement of medical bills.
Second, get an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) for your medical bills. This statement gives details of how your claim was processed, such as deductibles, coinsurance, and denied services. Compare your EOB to the invoice you receive from your doctor or hospital. Make sure the amount on your invoice matches the amount on the EOB. If not, you will need to go through the process of submitting your claim again.
Finally, be sure to save any correspondence you receive from your insurance company. It may be several weeks before you receive your Explanation of Benefits from your insurance company. This will help you determine if you are eligible to receive a reimbursement for any of your bills. You should also keep copies of all correspondence with your insurance company. When you receive your Explanation of Benefits, you will see how much your insurance company paid.
