With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s easy to forget about mundane things, like updating your insurance information. Even if you’re keeping the same provider and coverage, it’s important to know your benefits and where you’re covered. Before the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, make sure you have your healthcare updates squared away.
Many insurance providers require users to update their preferences each year. Make sure you know when your open enrollment period begins and ends, so you can ensure the best coverage for your family. You may even find a less expensive option! Be sure to update your physicians and other healthcare providers of any changes in your insurance.
Some companies send out new insurance cards each year, so it’s important to bring those with you to your first appointment of the new year. Having your most recent insurance may speed up the check-in process and avoid any confusion when it comes to billing.
We accept many different types of insurance, but it’s always best to check with your insurance provider before your appointment to ensure your procedure/treatment, doctor and hospital are covered. To learn more, visit http://www.neorthohospital.com/financial-services or call (402) 609-2423.
