Insurance and Claims
CarolinaEast Medical Center will gladly file your medical claims provided you have assigned benefits to the Medical Center. We accept all insurance but we may not have a contract with your payer. We are a contracted provider with Medicare, Medicaid, Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Tricare, MedCost, Multiplan, and many other plans.
Insurance Company Rules
Most payers have policies such as prior approval and benefit determination for scheduled services which must be completed prior to your visit. Please check with your physician and insurance company prior to receiving scheduled services. Sometimes you may be financially responsible if these rules are not followed. This generally does not apply to Medicare beneficiaries. It does apply if you have a Medicare replacement plan.
Medicare Replacement Plans
If you selected a Medicare replacement plan you do not have regular Medicare and must follow your payer’s rules. Please give the payer information to your physician’s office and to our registrar. Failure to do this may make you financially responsible for your services.
