Refund & Recoupments

Many overpayments, such as duplicate payments or clearly erroneous payment amounts, are often easy to detect due to credit balances.

Such requests may result from post-claim medical necessity reviews or from retroactively activated coding/bundling edits which may not be widely agreed upon within the billing industry. Learn how to contest unsubstantiated refund/recoupment requests and how various regulations read.
