Breath Tests: If applicable, CDI will submit a claim to insurance at the registered cost of the test, $549 with CPT code 91065 at 2 units. All insurance payments paid directly to CDI or to the patient will be applied to the registered cost of the test, $549, and the remaining balance is the patient’s responsibility but will never exceed $199 per test. If an insurance payment is made directly to the patient, the patient is responsible for forwarding the payment to CDI.
Results are sent to your provider within 24-48 hours upon receipt of your sample at our laboratory. If you are receiving a bill, results have been reported to your provider. Please have your provider contact CDI customer service.
We submitted your claim to the insurance you provided on the requisition form, and your balance due is your responsibility. For further clarification as to the amount your insurance paid or did not pay, please contact your insurance provider directly.
It is your responsibility as the patient to confirm if your insurance will cover the test. For further clarification as to why your insurance company did not make a payment, please contact your insurance company directly.
We will apply the paid amount to your account once we receive payment from your insurance provider. In the meantime, you will still receive statements since the claim was already processed and there is a balance due. You can also pay your balance now to close out your account, and we will reimburse you if required.
Your EOB is a summary of charges if we were in-network with your provider. Please review your insurance plans out-of-network policy which should either be listed on your EOB or on the insurance website. The cost of our test is $549, any insurance payments received are applied to the total cost of the test, and anything not covered by insurance is your responsibility which is stated on the requisition form that you signed. If you see “plan discount” on your EOB and we are not in-network with your provider, no plan discount has been negotiated or agreed upon with a signed contract between CDI and your insurance provider, so this does not apply to your claim.
If your insurance company pays you directly for any portion of your claim, you are responsible for sending the payment amount to CDI. Insurance payments made to the patient directly will be applied to the registered cost of the test, and the remaining balance is the patient’s responsibility but will never exceed $199 per breath test.
CDI will submit a claim on the patient’s behalf to commercial insurance, Medicare or Tricare. Insurance may cover some or all of the test depending on the patient’s insurance plan and benefits. In the event the patient’s insurance provider denies the insurance claim, or if the patient has not met the deductible or has a coinsurance or co-pay, or if for any reason the insurance does not cover the full amount of the test, the patient is responsible to pay CDI for products and services received. CDI does not accept any Medicaid plans: therefore any Medicaid patient taking a test will be responsible for the full cost of the test prior to receiving results. CDI offers convenient payment plans and financial hardship programs for qualifying patients. Patients may pay upfront via check sent with the kit or credit card. The maximum out-of-pocket cost is $199 per breath test for patients that pay promptly in accordance with CDI patient billing policies and programs.
