How do I know if my insurance company will pay for hospital services?

Why didn’t my insurance pay for some services?
Insurance policies vary on what services are covered under your plan. Consult with your employer and/or health insurance company directly to understand your coverage.
What if I disagree with how much my insurance paid on my bill?
Contact your insurance company directly. Be sure to note the representative you have spoken to. If an error has been made, request the insurance company provide you with an estimated date of when the correct payment will be received. If your insurance indicates the bill was paid correctly, request information about how to appeal the decision. An appeal will allow the payment to be reconsidered, however this is not a guarantee that payment will be made.
How quickly does my insurance plan pay?
Insurance claims are generally paid between four to six weeks from the date filed.
Can I still go to Centegra Health System if my insurance plan is out of network?
