Back to ACA Health Insurance Terms List


A claim is a bill. A doctor's office, lab, hospital, or another provider usually sends a claim to your health plan to pay. You can also submit a claim to your health plan if you pay for some care. A claim is asking to be reimbursed for the amount of your medical care your health plan covers.
