Health Insurance never received the invoice from the hospital!

I have done an RMI in Sep 2011, but so far I have not received any invoice from the hospital, neither do from the insurance company. So I have called my insurance company asking them if they have received this invoice from the hospital, and they have told me that they do not have this invoice.Is this a normal timing? It seems a bit long!

Re: Health Insurance never received the invoice from the hospital!

I'm still getting bills for treatment at the end of 2011.

And according to this article Zurich University Hospital has had some problems sending out bills... (sorry, I don't speak German so that's the French version).

The article also says that the hospital can send bills up to 5 years after the treatment!

If you're concerned, I'd ring the hospital and ask to speak to the administration / billing department. But it doesn't seem too long a gap to me - yet.

Hospitals usually send bills to the health insurance, and then insurance send you a bill for your share. The effective date is the date of the bill, not the date of the treatment!
