It’s essential to ensure that the doctor or provider you wish to visit is part of your health plan’s network. If you happen to see the provider before receiving your membership ID card, they might request you to sign an agreement to cover the service costs if you cannot demonstrate your health insurance coverage.
In such a scenario, the provider may subsequently send you an invoice for the services received. However, by the time you receive this bill or claim from your provider, your information is likely already in your health insurance company’s system. Once you have your membership ID card in hand, you can easily get in touch with your provider. Share your membership ID card number and request them to resubmit the bill directly to your health insurance company.
