In short, what is a superbill? - it's an itemized form that health practitioners fill out to prove the service(s) they provided. The completed form is given to the patients so that they (the patients) can submit it to their health insurance agency for reimbursement. This form is especially helpful for patients that have insurance coverage but their health practitioner is not on any insurance panels or an out-of-network provider.
** Make sure you contact your healthcare provider and:
- let them know that you want to work with an out-of-network practitioner
- ask them how much you will be reimbursed
- and what your coverage entails.
** Superbills can also be used to receive reimbursement from your HSA.
