UPDATE YOUR INFORMATION TO PREVENT CLAIMS PROCESSING ISSUES

PLANS CHANGE - VERIFY BENEFITS FOR NEW CALENDAR YEAR

It is always important to verify benefits for a patient to ensure you collect the appropriate co-payment, co-insurance, deductible, etc., at the time of service. This is especially important as we begin a new calendar year when benefits can likely change. Please obtain the most current copy of the patient’s insurance ID card at each visit. The payer information is listed on the back of the card; the payer will have the patient’s most current eligibility status. MedCost also offers a convenient listing on our website to give you a direct link to our payer partners with online access
