Detailed List of Charges Sample

Understanding Insurance Company’s Explanation of Benefits

Your insurance company will send you an explanation of benefits (EOB) summarizing the payment and the balance you are responsible for. If you have any questions about the amount paid, or not paid, by your insurance company, please call your insurance company's customer service number on the back of your insurance card or on the explanation of benefits.

Understanding Patient Liability Statement

After The Nebraska Medical Center receives a payment from the insurance company, the hospital will send the patient a patient liability statement for any balance due. The patient liability amount on the EOB should match the patient liability amount for the same date of service on your hospital statement.

If there is a discrepancy between these amounts, please contact the hospital’s Patient Financial Services between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Understanding Laboratory Statements

A patient may receive a list from the laboratory detailing the tests performed and analyzed. These statements are often written in insurance coding and patients may struggle to understand each line item.

LabTestsOnline.org is a third party website which provides useful information regarding lab tests and terminology.
