RE: [MedicalBillers] Re: No Show?
- Very few collection agencies touch these either and small claims doesn't at
all. My clients have in their policies that they will charge for no show's
and after so many they will be discharged as well.

Christy, we don't charge for No Shows, but we do track them. If we get too
many, then Dr. reviews for patient discharge from the practice.
We have a "dummy" CPT code called No Show and it carries a $0.00 charge with
it. It doesn't get billed to the insurance co. We have a way to set that up
in our fee schedule. I would just create a 'No Show' CPT in your fee
schedule and assign a fee to it. Be sure to instruct your biller to begin
charging for it.
Hope that helps!
