FAQ

Does anyone actually pay the submitted charges in the Physician and Other Supplier PUF?

In the private market, patients with comprehensive coverage often do not pay full charges because insurance companies negotiate better payment rates for their policy holders. Conversely, individuals with inadequate or no insurance coverage could be billed the full charge for the service or procedure. These individuals might not be able to take advantage of a lower payment rate negotiated by a private insurance company. The Medicare fee-for-service program sets payment rates for covered services.
