    I'm going before my practice's board soon for a presentation on some coding issues that can happen now and then and I just want to make sure they are clear on them.

    I'd like to know what some generic levels of fines are there, amount-wise.

    We all know doctor's wants figures and I'd like to give them a generic figure.

    Thanks for the help gang.

    I am not aware of fines however they will do take backs on all overpayments discovered. Also keep in mind, RAC is getting 9% of everything they recovery so they WILL be looking very hard!!
