How Your EOB is Calculated

After your claim is processed, you’ll receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) that details what was paid and, if a claim was denied, the reason why. An EOB is not a bill! It’s a good idea to review your EOB carefully and compare it to the statement from your provider.

Summary of Charges and Payments

An easy way to understand your summary of changes and payments is to think about it like a math equation:

This is the total amount the provider billed TeamCare.

 

PPO Discount/Non-Billable

Thanks to your TeamCare benefits, going to an in-network provider means you get discounted rates – this section shows the amount of your discount.  

Even if you went out of network, this section still shows the amount of your bill you won’t have to pay. Click here to learn more about the benefits you get using in-network providers.
