Insurance and Billing

If your question is not covered here, please feel free to call a representative at 513.246.7800 during our regular business hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Patient registration 

  • To every appointment, bring your insurance card(s) – including Medicare/Medicaid, prescriptions – and a photo ID, such as a driver’s license, state-issued ID or student ID. Without an insurance card, you may have to pay for your visit that day.
  • Insurance co-payments and all out-of-pocket expenses are due on the day of your visit. A billing fee of $20 will be charged when co-payment or out-of-pocket expenses are not paid the day of your visit.

Claims coding

  • It is important that you understand your insurance coverage. You are encouraged to contact your insurance company to find out what services are considered cosmetic and/or are not covered.

Obstetrics Billing

Insurance coverage for obstetrics
Group Health accepts most major insurance plans. See the list here. You should contact your insurance carrier, visit our web site at cgha.com or contact our Registration Department at 513.246.7780 to see if Group Health participates in your plan.

We will verify your insurance coverage and benefits to obtain your out of pocket/deductible cost related to your obstetrical care. You will be responsible for all co-payments, deductibles, and out-of-pocket expense not covered by your insurance.

For your convenience, we offer a payment plan of six equal installments. All outstanding balances must be paid in full prior to delivery.

Out-of-Pocket Limit – A predetermined amount of money that an individual must pay before insurance will pay 100 percent for an individual's health care expenses.

Deductible – Amount of loss that the insured pays before the insurance kicks in.

Coinsurance – For health insurance, it is a percentage of each claim above the deductible paid by the policyholder. For a 20-percent health insurance coinsurance clause, the policyholder pays for the deductible plus 20 percent of the covered losses. After paying 80 percent of losses up to a specified amount, the insurer starts paying 100 percent.

OB billing/coding
Your OB care will be billed globally. These services include antepartum (before birth) care, delivery, and postpartum (after birth) care. The services are listed below. Any other services in within this time period will be billed separately.

If you should have a change in insurance, transfer care to another practice, or our physician does not perform your delivery, your charges will be billed outside the global billing services. This is an estimate for the doctors' fee only. This does not include the hospital or the anesthesiologist fees.
