I'm not in CA... I would say it depends on the reason for the denial, but more than likely Yes, you should be able to bill the patient. Do you have your patients sign any kind of financial agreement when they first come in? Maybe something about this in your consent for treatment? The patient asks for services/treatment, then they should be responsible for payment if the insurance denies. (Unless there is some reason on the offices end that caused the denial???)
I cant imagine that any state would have a law saying if the ins didnt pay, oh well to bad.
Why did the ins deny? Pt may need to pay and in the meantime appeal to get their money back.
