Well, my own EOB (explanation of benefits) clearly lists the codes on all of my papers as well as the dates, the amounts...etc.
We can get access and even request copies from our own health records. HIPPA gives you, with few exceptions, the right to inspect, review, and receive a copy of your medical records and billing records that are held by health plans and health care providers covered by the Privacy Rule.
Correcting information is also a right. If you think the information in your medical or billing record is incorrect, you can request that the health care provider or health plan amend the record. The health care provider or health plan must respond to your request. If it created the information, it must amend the information if it is inaccurate or incomplete. If the provider or plan does not agree to your request, you have the right to submit a statement of disagreement that the provider or plan must add to your record.
@ Brian - If you are being denied access to correct a health record, or even review and get copies of anything you want from yours, then you should contact the HHS’ Office for Civil Rights who are there to protect these rights and rules.
