If a hospital admission or a surgery is not Precertified, eligible claims and expenses will be reduced by 50%. It is important to note that Precertification is only a determination of medical necessity, not an assurance of coverage, verification of benefits or a guarantee of payment. All medical expenses eligible for reimbursement must be medically necessary and will be paid or reimbursed at usual, reasonable, and customary rates. Please refer to the Certificate Wording for full details of the Precertification requirements.
