    Scroll down past the cover letter and resume sections. Under More Professional Writing Resources, you will find different links that will help you write and format a business letter.

    The primary reason I'd use for this purpose is the doctor's costs. If he bills the insurance $100 for a standard office visit, but the insurance decides that $55 is the "reasonable" cost, you will need to show the costs he has (salaries, building lease/rent, utilities, etc.) that necessitate the $100/visit charge ... or whatever amounts you decide to include.

  5. You need to be as factual as possible ... no emotion. Just state facts.

    Read through several of the model letters included in that website. Notice the tone of the letters. It's calm and professional, not emotional or whiny or demanding.

    Start out with the facts of what happened -- your office billed the insurance company $xxx for Mr. S----'s office visit on June 8, 2010, which included an extended examination and referral for lab work and radiology, etc., etc.

    Use your imagination and any information you can find in your text or study materials. Surely you aren't supposed to make this up out of thin air!
