Thread: Billed Less Than Allowed

    Question Billed Less Than Allowed

    AAPC: Back to School
    Just started at a new practice and I discovered that for the year 2010 all that the billed amount on all cpt codes to Medicare were less than the allowed amount. I have corrected the billed amount. Would it be wise to submit reopenings to Medicare for all these claims and requesting the billed amount be corrected?

    It sounds like the first thing you should do is review and/or revise your fee schedule. You are leaving money on the table.

    I would first determine how much revenue was lost and then present the amount to the physician and let him decide.
