Balance Billing

When a provider bills you for the balance remaining on
the bill that your plan doesn’t cover. This amount is the
difference between the actual billed amount and the
allowed amount. For example, if the provider’s charge is
$200 and the allowed amount is $110, the provider may
bill you for the remaining $90. This happens most often
when you see an out-of-network provider (non-preferred
provider). A network provider (preferred provider) may
not bill you for covered services.
