    Default Best Practice A/R Percentages for Family Practice

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need to find out where I can find the current "Best Practice" A/R percentages for family practice. I've looked online, but places like MGMA requires that you join as a member. I just need to know what the percentages should be in each A/R aging bucket to determine the current situation for a family practice client. If anyone out there could help I would greatly appreciate it, or if you could even refer to a place I could find this info myself. Thanks!!!

    Wink General Rule of Thumb

    I don't have FP specifics, but here is the general rule of thumb:

    50% of A/R should be 30 days or less
    25% of A/R should be 31-60 days
    15% of A/R should be 61-90 days
    10% of A/R should be 91-120 days
    Nothing should be in the Over 120 days bucket
    Hope this information is helpful to you.
