File a Health Insurance Claim Without Any Trouble
What happens when you visit a doctor? You need to fill out a form providing your insurance information. Once the doctor performs the check-up and runs any necessary tests, you will get a bill.
In case you have coverage, you should file a health insurance claim and request payment or reimbursement for the received medical services.
What Is a Health Insurance Claim?
A health insurance claim is a request you file to your insurance provider to receive the medical services covered in your policy.
For the services and treatment you received, you can claim your insurance policy in one of the following ways:
- Cashless claims—your insurance company settles all the bills directly with the medical institution
- Reimbursement—you pay all your medical expenses and request the insurance provider to reimburse them later
Understand the Health Insurance Claim Process
There are two common options for filing a health insurance claim. The most convenient one is when your medical service provider files the claim to your insurance company directly.
The other way is when you complete the claim form and submit it to the insurance provider by yourself. You will have to file the claim yourself if the medical institution you visited is not in your health insurance plan network.
What Information To Provide When Filing Health Insurance Claims
If you have a health insurance policy that you need to submit on your own, here is what you should provide in the claim form:
- The policy number, member, or group plan number
- The purpose of the appointment
- The name of the person who received the medical service—e.g., you, your child, or spouse
- Whether there is dual coverage or coinsurance
How To File a Health Insurance Claim by Yourself
If your health provider cannot file the claim for you, you must check what options are available.
Most insurance companies accept insurance claims online. To find out what the health insurance claim process is like with your provider, check your policy or visit their website.
