1. How do I know if MK Orthopaedics contracts with my health plan?
To receive full insurance benefits, some insurance providers require patients to receive services with “in-network” or “participating provider” hospitals and physicians. Call your insurance carrier to make sure MK Orthopaedics is in your network.
2. How much is my visit going to cost?
It can be hard to know ahead of time exactly how much you'll be charged for a visit. Charges are based on such things as time spent with the clinician, services ordered, diagnoses associated with those services, and supplies that are used.
3. How will I know how much I owe?
Your health plan may require a co-payment or deductible that will be due during appointment
Following your healthcare services, your insurance provider will send you an Explanation of Benefits (EOB), which will detail the amount it has paid, any non-covered or denied amounts, and the remaining balance that you are responsible for paying.
Review this EOB, compare it to your MK Orthopaedics billing statement, and call your insurance provider or a billing representative from MK Orthopaedics @ 815-741-1879 if you have questions or concerns
4. How much is my deductible and coinsurance?
Your deductible and coinsurance amounts are determined by the insurance plan in which you are enrolled. This information should be included in your insurance benefits handbook. If you cannot find this information or have other questions, contact your insurance carrier.
5. Why do I still owe a balance if my insurance company has paid?
Based on your insurance plan, you may be responsible for deductibles, copays and co-insurance for fees not covered by your insurance company.
6. Why aren't all services covered by my insurance company?
Under any plan, there may be services that are not covered because the insurance company may consider them routine or unnecessary. If you disagree with the decision, you should contact your insurance company for more information.
7. What does “adjustment” mean?
“Adjustment” refers to the portion of your bill that your hospital or doctor has agreed not to charge you.
8. Does MK Orthopaedics bill secondary insurances?
Yes, we will help you to receive full benefits from your insurance provider. You will be asked to provide complete insurance information upon registration. Be sure you have a copy of your insurance cards at that time. As a service to you, we will submit secondary claims along with required EOBs to your insurance provider. However, if your insurance provider doesn't make payment within 60 days, we will ask you to pay the amount owed.
9. Why do I have to give my insurance information every time I visit MK Orthopaedics
We ask for your insurance information every time you visit to ensure that our records are accurate and up to date. Patients and/or employers change insurance carriers with great frequency. To process your bill quickly and accurately, we ask you for your insurance information on every visit. This gives us the opportunity to verify your insurance coverage and benefits
