Prior to the date of surgery, always verify eligibility and benefits to understand coverage and determine the party responsible for payment. Always call the insurance company and as per your discussion with the insurance representative, if required, obtain prior authorization. Obtain pre-determination if prior authorization is not required. An insurance company may not process the pre-determination request, try to take approval for pre-determination based on medical necessity. In absence of prior authorization, an insurance company may not pay for offered services.
