A health insurance company’s verification of benefits (i.e., confirmation that the patient is insured, covered, and eligible for coverage) is not an enforceable oral promise to pay for the patient’s treatment by a health care provider.  Here, summary judgment was properly granted against a health care provider’s breach of oral and implied contract claims.  It produced no evidence to show that the insurer’s representatives orally promised to pay the provider’s charges or that they had the same understanding of the required reimbursement rate as the provider’s personnel.  Likewise, an insurer’s authorization of treatment is not a promise to pay for the treatment at a specified rate.
