Following up on unpaid insurance claims is one of the most important responsibilities for medical billing companies or the Medical billing specialists at the doctors office.

Most insurance companies have timely filing limits that must be met or you lose the right to receive payment for that claim.

Unless the survivors signed some type of contract or agreement to be responsible for the deceased's medical bills, it is the deceased's ESTATE which is liable for the expense. The medical suppliers should first file a claim against the insuror and THEN proceed against the deceased's estate for any unpaid remainder - NOT the survivors.
