What To Know About Medical Claims A medical claim also known as a health insurance claim can be obtained in three ways: through the government, through the employer or a person’s initiative. If it is through the employer, the employer chooses the insurer and the policy plan for the employee. When the month expires the employer takes away some money from the employee’s salary to cover the insurance. When it is through a person’s own effort the person approaches an insurance firm and pays for the insurance policy so that they can be given the insurance policy. If it is through the government it is often at a subsidized price. When the month expires some money will be taken out from the salary of that person to cater for the insurance. Medical claims have made the whole process of obtaining health care easy and convenient. In the event that an individual falls sick they are required to go to the hospital, and they get treated without paying anything. It is then upon the health care provider to demand payment for the medical service from the insurance firm or from the employer who may also be the insurer. It entails some certain processes before the hospital can be refunded the amount that the patient has used on medication. The the whole procedure of medical claim processing begins when the patient gets to the health care facility. The individual who is not feeling well is then invited to submit the health insurance card. The insured is then called upon to fill a medical form that will give the health care facility individual information about them. The patient is also required to present a government photo identification card for identification purposes. When all the information has been verified the patient then receives treatment. After the medical service has been provided the hospital then documents all the billable services that the patient has received. The information noted down regarding the medical services given and the expenses incurred is better known as health insurance claim.

The record is then sent to the insurance company that has covered the patient. The insurance company then has three options. One is to verify the information that the hospital has sent and then reimburse the hospital. The second thing they do is when they verify the information and find some false statement they refuse to reimburse the hospital.
