Common Health Insurance Claim Errors

Mistakes with Health Insurance Claims

Insurance providers typically look for any excuse they can to deny health insurance claims. Thus, it is important to avoid errors that your insurer can use as a reason to not pay your claim. Some of the most common mistakes with health insurance claims include:

  • Listing the wrong procedure or treatment
  • Missing the time limit for filing claims
  • Inaccuracies with the healthcare provider’s information

In addition, insurance companies may sometimes deny, delay, or underpay on accurate claims that are filed correctly. In these situations, you may be a victim of insurance bad faith.
