Dr *** did not bill
her for a "physical exam" rather for a detailed office visitThe diagnosis code he billed for the visit was "encounter for
prescriptions" which is code VMedicare considers many "V" codes to be routine and many routine services are not

Ms*** called and the customer service representative sent the claim for coding review which, unfortunately, did

Should you need additional information, please don't hesitate to contact me
Dear Ms*** at Revdex.com, and Ms***, Coding and Compliance
at LewisGale Physicians,
Thank you for replying to my concerns about improper handling
of charges to my LewisGale account. I
understand that a new bill has been sent to Medicare, that LGP recognized that
*** needed to be refunded for overpayment, and that the balance on the
account has been temporarily removed from my responsibility pending responses
to proper billing of my insurers. Also, Ms
***, I appreciate your apology on behalf of LGP
This is a start toward resolution of my concerns, but only a
start. I have reviewed the response offer made by the business in reference to
complaint ID ***, and have determined that this proposed action
would not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the
offer I reviewed appear below
Please recall my requested
outcomes: “Most important I wish the LGP
Group to redesign it's accountability so that people are expected to bill
and/or adjust bills accurately the first time, and to correct any problems
promptly and effectivelyI want my payments to be credited to the charge I've
been billed for, not placed into a pool from which LGP can disburse the payment
to any charge they chooseI want a refund and an explanation of how they will
prevent such errors from occurring in the future, especially for me and all
other disabled, very young or elders like meLast I would ALWAYS like to be
issued a refund promptly on any bill that my insurers and I have paid for at
the agreed upon rate.”
Certainly some time must pass for Ms*** to complete
the corrected billings to Medicare and *** and to obtain their responses. I suggest that that on behalf of myself and
the Revdex.com, you, Ms***, plan to re-contact LGPhysicians in days to obtain
an update about that
So far, so good. Now,
what steps has Ms*** taken to address the systemic problems that my
case has uncovered? Is not her own
inability to acknowledge the initial notification sent on 10/23/an
indication of lapses in the company’s handling of correspondence and
I expect any needed
refunds to go promptly to the agent who overpaid. I trust that Ms*** can see that I
have already overpaid on this bill, yet I received a collection letter from the
corporation‘s collection arm last week.
While I do expect she will cancel that collection order, it is another
example of “the billing system” acting in a way that is unsatisfactory. “The
billing system” needs to be ably monitored and controlled by humans who can
discern commonsense responses to information that a machine cannot. Without that, in the future, how can I be assured
that billing to insurers and to me will be accurate?
I have reviewed the response offer made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted], and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint.

Lewis Gale Physician's inappropriate dunning of me over this bill for 04/16/14
with Dr. [redacted].
This week, I
contacted my secondary insurer in regard to a different Lewis Gale Physicians bill. I
triggered the company's discovery that
they, [redacted], has processed nearly all of my medical bills since 10/01/13
under a previous policy number inappropriately and incorrectly. Probably it will be many weeks until we know
what total amount I truly am responsible
for down to the penny. The insurer did
contact the hospital to advise them of this, per my request. Thus, they share
responsibility for mixed up claims processing of my bills.
the flawed structure of the billing process itself, why am I not surprised that
the hospital's spokesperson states that she must refer me to another department
out of the area? I'm also unsurprised
that the name and contact information for the supposed responsible party has
not been offered.
What do I
1.) A full reevaluation of current billing
practices. I would much appreciate
learning that there has been the program's redesign, so that bills are created
correctly the first time. I would like
to learn that there is then a new staff training which also empowers them to
make reasonable patient accommodation when errors occur. Any reasonable person looking at this bill's history can see
that far too many payments I've made have been credited to this overcharged
bill. Would it be too much to ask for
LGMC to refund all but the expected amount of patient responsibility after both
insurers have reprocessed the claim?

I hope the billing issues get resolved in skilled and thoughtful ways.
