can you claim something on your insurance if you didnt pay for it yourself

court order states that ex is to have children covered on his dental insurance. recently I took my daughter to the dentist which they referred me to an Orthodontist. I didnt know that my exs insurance wouldnt cover the visit so I paid for the visit in cash. Now he is trying to claim it with his insurance so he can be reimbursed the 265.00 can he do that ?

  • No. He should have no right to claim that on his insurance.

  • Why would he think he could get the cash if they wouldnt pay it to the dentist? If its not covered, its just not.

  • Just to be sure -- you know that his insurance *will NOT* cover it. So if he tries to get them to, why would they? If they won't cover it, they won't cover it.

  • What I mean is, if YOU paid it then YOU have the receipt right? They aren't going to honor a claim w/out proper documentation even if they do cover it.
