How to read your Health Benefits Statement
If you have a plan with a deductible, every month in which you have a claim processed for health care services you received, we will send you a Health Benefits Statement.
The Health Benefits Statement gives you information about how much the provider charges for the services, how much Fallon pays and how much you are responsible for paying.
What your statement tells you:
Dates of service
The day or days you were provided the service
A short description of the service you received, such as laboratory service if you had blood drawn for testing
Your provider charged
The amount that your provider billed for the service
Discounted amount Fallon members pay
