Information to Patients
Make sure the office has your current insurance information
Keep your medical insurance information current with the office. Your insurance should reimburse for testing and there will be no or limited additional cost to you.
Certain insurance companies may send the reimbursement directly to the patient which should always be forwarded to the lab. If this happens, the lab will send a notice to forward the payment to them.
Insurance may also apply their payment directly to your deductible.
Understanding an “Explanation of Benefits” from your insurance company
This is NOT a bill from your insurance company or from National Labs.
Insurance companies will send patients an EOB (Explanation of Benefits) that shows the max allowable amount billed and paid. Insurance companies often will only pay a % which is reflected in the EOB.
The “Patient Responsibility” is not a bill from either the insurance company or National Labs. This only reflects the amount that your insurance company did not pay.
If you receive a statement from National Labs and need assistance
A bill from National Labs will have the National Labs logo and letterhead. If you feel you have received an inaccurate bill or are questioning if you have received an EOB, please call us right away.
