Direct Billing Arrangement (DBA) Overseas Providers & Facilities

If you received care from a provider with whom we have a Direct Billing Arrangement, the only expense you may be responsible for is your deductible and/or coinsurance and any non-covered services. The provider will bill us directly and we pay the provider for covered services.
