When our office verifies benefits we are not always given the correct benefits, we do our best to insure that they are correct, but errors do happen. We are only able to give you the information that your insurance company gives us. We recommend that you also verify your benefits, which will help to eliminate error.
It is very important that you understand that our office can NEVER guarantee payment even after we have been told that it will be covered and/or have an authorization. Coverage is always based on medical necessity and benefits at the time of service. There is always a possibility that one or more of the dates of services could be denied, leaving you a balance.
