Balance Billing

The practice of medical care providers (such as doctors, hospital, or other medical practitioner) billing the insurer for full costs, then billing the insured for the portion of the bill which was not paid. Many Managed Care plans prohibit the use of balanced billing and may use sanctions against providers who balance the bill.
