Tip #9: If you receive a claim rejection, contact your insurance company first prior to making payment.

Ask the billing office also for help, they have experience with health insurers and may offer insight to expedite the payment process.

When calling, be specific about the visit in question, the remarks on the insurance bill, and ask direct questions about why this is being rejected and under what conditions it would have been paid.
