I received a letter from my insurance company or hospital indicating other insurance information is needed or accident information is needed. What should I do?
You need to contact your insurance company to provide them with the requested information. Many insurance companies require a written response and will not take information verbally. It is your responsibility to follow-up with your insurance company as we cannot act on your behalf in these cases to obtain payment.
I have a previously unpaid balance that is now listed with a collection agency. How can I remove this item from my credit report?
Once an account is listed with a collection agency, you will need to contact them to arrange payment. Once paid, a satisfaction letter will be issued against the credit listing.
Why is there a usual, customary and reasonable (UCR) denial from my insurance carrier?
Insurance coverage varies among insurers and policies. Many insurance companies limit payments using a fee schedule of "usual, customary and reasonable" (UCR) allowances. Froedtert Health fees may differ from insurance companies' fee schedules. Please direct questions regarding UCR to your insurance carrier. You're responsible for payment of your account, including balances due to UCR limitations.
When an insurance company denies part of a claim because of usual, customary and reasonable (UCR) allowances, is there an appeal process?
To appeal, you must personally lodge a formal appeal with your insurance company. You typically must appeal within a set time. Froedtert Health can't advise whether you should file an appeal and doesn't have the right to file an appeal on your behalf. Most insurers are required to respond to your request within 30 to 60 days, but it's best to check with your insurer about its appeal policy.
How much will insurance pay for my services?
We are unable to give you a quote on the amount your insurance is going to pay. We recommend calling your insurance carrier for this information.
