When both parents carry insurance on a child, which insurance is primary?

According to Ohio state law, the parent whose birth month comes first in the year carries the primary insurance. The other parent's insurance is secondary.

Am I responsible for following up with my insurance company if they are slow to pay?

Yes. You are responsible for your medical bills. As a courtesy to you we bill your insurance. However, if we run into a situation where your insurance company is not paying in a timely manner, we do expect you to intervene and assist with getting them to pay your bill.

Why haven't I received a copy of the bill yet?

We send the bill to your insurance company. We do not send copies of bills to patients unless they specifically ask for a copy. However, we do send notifications to you regarding the status of your claim with your insurance company if you owe a balance.
