Pacific Prime clients with Now Health will no longer have to worry about their medical bills in the hospital as the insurer has recently extended out-patient direct billing to cover maternity benefits on the WorldCare group plans.
The new direct billing service will be available for several levels of the WorldCare plan – Advance, Excel, and Apex.
A direct billing service allows a client's medical bills to be delivered directly to the insurer. Often this kind of service saves clients the hassle of the reimbursement process. It gives patients the ability to focus on their health instead of their bills.
The new out-patient direct billing service for routine maternity benefits will be up to US $15,000 for the WorldCare Apex plan as an additional option. The same service for WorldCare Excel will be up to US $10,000. The WorldCare Advance plan will be up to US $7,000, and clients also have the option for 20% co-insurance.
In order to take advantage of this new service, clients will also need a Now Health membership card. Any new or renewal plan will have the benefit clearly displayed on the top right hand corner of their membership card alongside other out-patient benefits.
If a client's plan is a renewal with routine maternity benefits, he or she will also receive updated membership cards. For clients with routine maternity benefits but without a renewal, the insurer will re-issue their membership cards mid-year. When clients arrives for their appointments, they must show their membership cards and the medical providers will follow Now Health guidelines.
Now Health sees this new service as an enhancement that will make it easier for pregnant clients to seek medical care. If a client has valid cover and nil co-insurance, the client can access treatment within the always growing provider network from Now Health without having to worry about the payment.
