Surprise check in the mail today

December 17th, 2009 at 11:38 am

We got a nice surprise today. Before my wife's first surgery on 10/23, the office required us to make an upfront payment of $316 which I assume represented the percentage of the bill they anticipated wouldn't be covered by insurance.

Today, my wife got the mail and saw what she thought was another bill from the practice and wondered why because she thought we had paid everything. It turned out to be a check refunding the $316 because insurance had covered everything.

Today is her birthday so that was a nice little bonus gift.

    Now there's something you don't see insurance companies do every day.

    Happy birthday to your wife!

    This actually didn't come from the insurance company. It came from the doctor's office. We had paid them upfront. Then, I suppose, they submitted the insurance claim and got paid by the insurance company, thus making out payment a duplicate.

    That is a pretty good deal, and you must have good insurance to cover everything for the surgery! I usually assume that the up-front fee is money that is kissed goodbye, so it is nice to see that sometimes it leads to another result.
