Medicare reprocesses many Mid-Mo Ambulance claims
Tuesday, September 20, 2011
The Mid-Mo Ambulance Board was informed at its regular monthly meeting held Wednesday, Sept. 14, of the recent actions by Medicare as a result of claims being "processed incorrectly." According to Office Manager Brenda West, all claims from January to June 2010 were reprocessed. The result was that medicare paid a little more, but left an additional amount due on the patient's 20 percent portion of the bill.
Most balances due on the patient's bills was $3.32. Since the accounts reprocessed and adjusted were already over a year old and many had already been closed due to an uncollectable debt or death of the patient. Some of those were among the accounts totaling $1,083.80 written off in the office.
