Balanced Billing – Importance And The Factors Involved To Stay Compliant

Balance billing is the practice of healthcare provider billing a patient for the amount not reimbursed by their health insurance company.

Is balance billing a way of increasing income for healthcare providers? Do the providers follow transparent pricing while charging patient? These “double dipping” of charges by health care providers is a critical matter for everyone involved—be it healthcare providers, insurance agencies or the patients—because the failure to balance bill patients correctly can lead to massive prospective commercial payer denials, huge refund demands and professional license suspension.
