In this section, we provide detailed answers to common questions about our medical billing services, helping you understand how our solutions can improve revenue cycle management and streamline billing processes for your practice.
A recipient may be billed for services that have been determined as non-covered or exceeding the services limit for recipients over the age of 21. Recipients are also responsible for all services rendered after his/her eligibility has ended. Providers may not bill recipients in instances where provider billing errors have caused a denied claim.
In order to bill a recipient for a non-covered service, the recipient must be informed both verbally and in writing that he/she will be responsible for payment of the services.
