So you wonder, why on earth a complete article on the medical insurance claim form? Well to be honest, I wasn’t sure myself until I began doing research for this article. Another applicable term might be health insurance claim form and from that point of view it equates with a return to health following an accident or illness and taking care of incurred expenses.
Don’t be fooled by the medical insurance claim form. There’s a lot of significance tied to filling one of these little babies out. And frankly while I have been fortunate, up ’til now, I have had more dealings with these forms than I care to think about due to the accident and geriatric issues so prevalent among my friends and family these last few years.
Getting Down To The Nitty Gritty
Getting down to the real reason why we humans fill out yet another of the many forms required of us in order to get the things that we need involves looking at a medical insurance claim form in all its glory. Now if you don’t have a head for remembering numbers make sure and have all the necessary ones at hand because the form is rife with questions needing numerical answers.
If the person filling out the medical insurance claim form has Medicare, Medicaid, Group Health insurance or some other form of group health insurance they will need to supply that number sometimes even before being asked their name. There are questions relating to relationships. Married or not, relationship to the insured, provided the person filling out the form is not the insured himself or herself.
There are the usual questions about sex, birth, employment, employer, history of illness, federal tax numbers, account number, dates unable to work, date of admission to the hospital and date of release, how much was charged for services rendered and so on and so on.
These are all necessary components to filling a health insurance claim form. And it must be filed in order to make a claim so that insurance will pay for medical expenses as opposed to you doing so out of pocket.
