  • We just got a notice from our insurance. We get one every time a claim is made. It showed a billing of $150 from my OB for the U/S they did at 10 weeks. The insurance paid all but my copay that I paid that day! I was told by the OB's billing lady that it wouldn't be billed if the OB did an U/S for a medical need, but I wonder if she meant that it would be covered so I wouldn't be billed independently or what?

    I'm confused completely! I'm going to call my insurance company tomorrow and see if this is the one U/S that they cover per pg or if this is a "medical need" U/S and that's why they covered it. The OB schedules an actual tech to do the 20 week U/S and all that, so I'm wondering if the insurance sees them different or what not.

    I'm confused and I hope this means my insurance is better then what I was told and will cover the 20 week U/S! Hopefully I'll find out soon. I'd love to get in by Thanksgiving!

  • I would call the dr first and find out if they used a code on the claim that indicated it was a medical need (vs a different code the insurace claim that would have meant it wasnt medically necessary)- then call the insurace co and confirm converage for all medically necessary u/s.... good luck!
