Statement of Benefits Paid

A Statement of Benefits Paid (SOBP) is a list of physician services paid for by the AHCIP on your behalf during a specific period. It includes the date and general type of service, physician name and the amount that was paid to the physician.

The requested SOBP is sent directly to the individual or their authorized representative.

Hospital services do not appear on the SOBP. These may be requested directly from the hospital.

How to order an SOBP

Current year

There is no cost for an SOBP for the most recent benefit year (July 1 to June 30) to the current year to date.
