Your Explanation of Benefits explained
Applicable for commercial group, individual and Medicaid members.
What’s an Explanation of Benefits (EOB)?
A record of the medical services you received over a certain amount of time. A detail of items that your provider billed Priority Health, what was paid and your expected share of
the cost. Your provider will bill you your share.
When will I receive an EOB?
Whenever you receive a medical service and a provider bills us for that service, we’ll send you an EOB unless your share is $0 or only your copayment amount. This is the claims
process. Log into your MyHealth account to see current and past claims online.
What should I do with my EOB?
Keep a record of your EOBs and file all of your paper copies. We recommend going paperless to receive an email when a new claim statement is available in your MyHealth
account. To do this, log in to your MyHealth account and choose Costs, then Claims. Under Claims details, select I choose to go paperless.
