Review your Health Insurance ‘Explanation of Benefits’

An article on Examiner.Com got my attention  (http://www.examiner.com/health-news-in-phoenix/to-prevent-fraud-check-your-eobs) .   A couple stole the identities of 128 patients and the tax ids from a handful of doctors. They then proceeded to file false claims for various procedures and collect the insurance monies. This couple might have been stopped much more quickly if any of the 128 patients had been monitoring the “Explanation of Benefits”  (EOB) received from the health insurance company after any claim is filed.   While such claims are fraudulent and don’t get paid directly out of your pocket, they might still impact you by depleting your benefits or creating false medical histories that later result in you being unable to obtain health insurance or life insurance! Take a peek at your EOB and know what is being charged against your policy!
