Why Submit an Insurance Verification Request?
Insurance verification is the process of contacting an insurance company to confirm coverage for a particular procedure and, where applicable, the amount of coverage that's included.
Completing an insurance verification is important for a couple of reasons. First, it gives the potential client a better idea of what his or her financial responsibility will be. Second, it helps the treatment provider determine whether the client is eligible for financial aid and is often taken into consideration when providing treatment recommendations.
Additionally, insurance verification is the first and most significant step in the medical billing and coding process, especially as the healthcare system requires increasingly frequent validations of coverage, benefits, copayments, and deductibles.
