Balance billing is a provider billing you for the difference between the provider’s or facility's charge and the allowed amount.
For example, if the provider’s charge is $100 and the allowed amount is $70, the provider may bill you for the remaining $30.
- For UMP Classic and UMP CDHP: Preferred and participating providers may not balance bill you for covered services above the allowed amount.
- For UMP Plus: ACP network and other Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield providers may not balance bill you for covered services above the allowed amount.
