Warning!

Health Insurance Contracts can be very complicated and should be reviewed by an expert, preferably a health care lawyer!


Be Advised!

Most health insurance contracts are Pro-Insurance Company


Things To Check

  • Silent PPO

  • Claim Submission

  • Claim Payment

  • Overpayments

  • Appeal

  • Termination


Silent PPO


Silent PPO

  • This Agreement is entered into by and between Insurance Company A, contracting on behalf of itself, Company Aand the other entities that are its’ Affiliates (collectively referred to as Company A) and Provider B(Name of Provider).

  • Any corporation, partnership or other legal entity (including any Plan) directly or indirectly owned or controlled by, or which owns or controls, or which is under common ownership or control with Company.

  • An insurance company could have 5,000 affiliates or entities.


Close the Backdoor!

List anyone and everyone authorized access to YOUR contract within the Contract! If they aren't listed, they aren't allowed access.

Give approving authority, in writing, to any new entity or affiliate that the insurance company wants to add or purchases.


If They Refuse!


Claim Submission
