How To Send Hospital Bill To Insurance?

Knowing how to file a claim with your insurance provider is crucial if simply handing over your insurance ID card won't ensure straight billing. This procedure can ensure that your medical expenses are paid as quickly as possible and that you are reimbursed for any visits you have paid for out of pocket.

Step 1: Gather Your Itemized Receipts.

You must first get an itemized bill from your doctor or another medical practitioner in order to submit a claim. Every service you had will be listed on this bill, along with the price and a unique code the insurance company will require to process your claim.

Call your provider and let them know you are making an insurance claim to obtain these receipts easily. After giving them a few details, such as your complete name and the date of service, they should immediately provide your itemized receipts.

Step 2: Fill Out A Claim Form

A helpful hint is to always include more pages to your claim form in case you require more room to respond to each question fully.

A claim form is a document that provides further information regarding the accident or illness in question to your insurance provider. The more information you provide on this form, the easier it will be for them to determine whether your insurance policy covers the costs you claim.

Remember that each form should come with instructions for filling it out and information on how and where to send it, but if you have any issues, just get in touch with your insurance provider.

Typical claim form sections include

  • Information about you personally, such as your name, address, and birthdate

  • Information about your insurance, such as your policy and group number.

  • Background information about your illness and your visit's purpose

  • Information about the provider, such as the name and address of the doctor

  • Expenses that you have already paid out of pocket

Step 3: Make at least one copy

Making copies of your whole claim before sending it to your insurance provider is always a smart idea as a precaution. If there is a problem with your claim, keep a backup copy of the completed claim form and your gathered receipts.

Step 4: Review, Call, and Send

Advice: If at all feasible, send your claim by email or fax. This will expedite the procedure and allow you to maintain the original paperwork.

Call your insurance provider once your paperwork is finished and ready to be mailed. Inform them that you will send a claim form and go over the documents you will send. Ask them how long it will take for the claim to be paid out and if any further documents need to be supplied.

You can mail your claim form and related papers to your insurance company once everything is in order. Check your claim form if you need the address to submit it. Most of the time, you will need to mail your claim in. However, there are some circumstances when you can send your paperwork by email or fax instead.

Step 5: Wait.

Right now, all you can do is wait. Keep an eye on your calendar and remember the date your insurance provider told you when you phoned regarding the claim. Inform your insurance provider if you don't hear back from them about your claim within the time frame specified.

To generate a paper trail that you may require if more issues with your claim occur, be sure to record the date, time, full name (or names), and work titles of everyone you talk with as you converse.

Advice: Don't be hesitant to follow up with your insurance provider after you've filed a claim to ensure they have all the required paperwork and that it's completed correctly.

Otherwise, be aware that your insurance provider can ask for further paperwork, such as medical history records, to back up your claim, so it's crucial to monitor the procedure.

As usual, if you have inquiries about making a claim, the status of your claim, or your EOB, be sure to get in touch with your insurance provider immediately.


Verify that you've filled out all the required fields on the claims form and that you've attached all required documents and bills. You might wish to call the number on the back of your card a week after submitting the paperwork to be sure they aren't missing anything. Claims can take about 30 business days to process.

Send your insurance company the claim form once everything is in order. The form includes a list of the address where the documents should be sent. Emailing the claim can speed up the process, so we advise doing so.
