Tips for saving time and getting the most from your medical insurance:

We’ve put together some helpful tips to save you time and help you get the most out of your medical insurance. As with everything, good communication is the key to working will with insurance companies. Because policies vary, it is important to contact your insurance company directly to confirm how your plan will pay charges for service and to keep records of the conversations.

Prior to calling your insurance company, ask your provider:

  • Is this a routine exam (i.e. an annual exam or physical)?

When you call your insurance company, have a set of questions ready to ask. Some suggestions are:

  • Do I have benefit coverage for (insert service name)?
  • Is a referral or preauthorization necessary to have this service?

If yes, your primary care provider must initiate the referral or preauthorization.

  • Do I have a deductible?
  • Following my deductible, how much will I owe?
  • How much am I responsible for paying following the insurance coverage?

To maximize your health insurance benefits, please contact your insurance company’s Customer Service department for policy and benefit verification. The Customer Service phone number should be located on the back of your health insurance ID card.

Please check with your insurance carrier for information on required referrals and authorizations and co-payments.
