I have insurance. Why am I getting a bill?

Many insurance plans include co-payments, co-insurance and deductibles that are the patient’s responsibility to pay. Once your insurance has processed a claim, you will be billed for any deductible/co-insurance amounts according to the Explanation of Benefits received from your insurance company. If you have questions regarding how your insurance company processed a claim, please contact your insurance carrier directly. If you have questions concerning your account balance after your insurance has considered your claim, please contact OU Physicians Patient Accounts at 405-271-1500.
