Humana sometimes reviews an itemized bill for an inpatient admission to determine whether supplies, items and services specified on the itemized bill are separately billable. If an itemized bill is not provided when requested, or if improper billing is identified during the review of an itemized bill, one or more of the following outcomes may result:
- Reimbursement reduction
- Payment recoupment
- Denial of specific charges
