Reading an Insurance Card

The patient’s insurance card contains valuable information such as the policy type, copay information, and claim submission address. Take a look at the insurance card below to become familiar with them. Remember that cards differ from insurance to insurance, but the basic information will always be present, so even if the cards are different you'll have an idea what to look for.

Front: On the front of the insurance card you generally will find the insurance company name, coverage type, patient name, patient policy number, and co-payment amounts.


Back: The back of the card will usually contain pre-certification contact information, contact telephone numbers and the claims submission address.
