health procedures


Question by  JamieSmith (23)

Is there a time limit to when your insurance can bill you for a medical procedure?


Answer by  gaelic (34)

The bill actually comes from a medical facility, such as a hospital or doctor's office. The facility has contracts with insurance companies, including a time limit in which the facility can bill the insurance. Once the insurance company has paid its portion, the facility then bills the individual for the balance, and there is no time limit.

The average time limit for most insurance companies is 45 days, in which the provider can send an appeal to an insurance company on behalf of the insured. If the service is denied, the provider may then bill you for the service.

Your insurance does not bill you for a medical procedure. The people who performed the services are the ones that bill you; and generally there is no time limit for that. There is usually a time limit for the provider to submit a medical claim to your insurance company.
