Homework Help: Med insurance billing

Posted by Sabrina on Sunday, September 12, 2010 at 1:21am.

A patient presented for evaluation after a fainting spell. The following tests were ordered by the physician: carbon dioxide, chloride, potassium, and sodium. The health-care claim that was submitted contained procedure codes for each test. You have not received any payment on this claim, although payments for other claims sent to the same carrier on that day have been received. What do you think accounts for the delay?
