Tracking PPO write-offs

We use the code 50.90 for all of our PPO write-off's regardless of the insurance company.  We would like to track the write-off's according to which insurance company we are doing the ppo write-off for.  For example, we would like to breakdown the difference between Metlife write-off's and Delta Dental write-off's. It would also be nice to be able to track the plan/employers/employees assigned to the allowance table. For example, every plan that has Metlife insurance.   #

Re: Tracking PPO write-offs

You can get the PPO writeoff per insurance company totals using the 50.90 codes by insurance company or by plan. If you have the insurance "umbrella" company set up for the PPO plans you can get accurate numbers. If you have a lot of duplicated insurance companies there is a clean up/consoildate process that needs to occur before the results will be accurate(consolidated) else you will need to run multiple reports for each duplicate and total them up manually. The insurance reports under practice management are designed to use the "standard" insurance writeoff codes.

Bert,

I do not understand what you mean by "umbrella" company. We set up an insurance plan by the employer then attach the fee schedule to it from the allowance table. All of our PPO write off's fall under the code 50.9 so we cannot determine which of that is Metlife, Guardian, Delta, ect.

Re: Tracking PPO write-offs

Umbrella means the same Metlife Insurance Company (Company ID=7) for

example in the top box on your Metlife insurance plans not a bunch of

duplicated different metlifes scrambled throughout your PPO plans that are

Metlife

Re: Tracking PPO write-offs

Bert,

I am trying to find a report that shows all of the plans linked to the Insurance company Guardian. Is there any reports that will do that? If yes, where do I find that at?

Re: Tracking PPO write-offs

That brings up the plan not the insurance company. I am looking for a report that shows all of the plans that have Guardian insurance. That should be a very basic report that we should be able to print. If you cannot find that as an option, please pass this request onto your developmental team who is asking for requests for the new update.
