Will list how much you were charged for the service(s) by your doctor.

Note: If you went to the University Health Center first, or you went for emergency treatment, this section should always say $0.00.
Lists any charge that the insurance company will not pay for.
The service code is the company’s way of saying why a charge was not covered.
Note: If the reason is that the charge exceeds the Reasonable and Customary fee, that means that the doctor charged more than what the insurance company will pay for that service. If you talk to the doctor, they may not make you pay that amount, but they might.
