Net collection rate is defined as a ratio of Total Collections and Total Charges less Adjustments. Gross collection rate is defined as a ratio of Total Collections to Total Charges only.) According to Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) 1998 Cost Survey adjusted fee-for-service collections (net collections) for family practices in 1997 averaged 98.65 percent. A declining net collection ratio may be symptomatic of increased contractual write-offs or insufficient number of denial appeals. This metric is especially useful in the absence of modern computer technology when comparison of every payment to allowed amount is impossible or when appeal process of denials is too expensive.

You specify in the contract that it is the obligation of the providers office representative to supply you with all the payment remittances but you are not getting them which is causing you to do a lot of extra work in contacting the insurance carriers to check status on claims that were already paid. It is upsetting to spend three or four hours calling insurance companies to find that the claims were paid but the doctors office missed sending you the eobs.
