yes,,,,   I was applying payments for the claims that I was notified by the insurance companies as paid.

my client told me she's coming tomorrow with all the EOBs that have come in since July.


     ( It was her office girl that was not cooperating with us )  she was to fax the EOBs over and she did not want to bother with any extra work. 

     thanks for the thought

Whether it was the office staff or not isn't the issue anymore.

about the charging;   Since my client has not faxed over the EOBs showing payments received.
I only have record of cigna and blue cross payments received.  which total $136.75.
( Would I be able to charge her a flat fee since July when I first started doing all electronic billing for her?)
being that florida has the split fee law I think she doesn't want to pay me a percentage of the amount collected,   ( I billed her in Sept. for the percentage of the amount collected and she didn't send me a check ( I didn't even get a call reg. not paying it. )

We don't know what your contract says, the provider has been tipped off on the fee splitting law, you should have consulted an attorney a while ago on this. I really think your only recourse is to re-negotiate and try and get her to do a retroactive agreement for the monies she owes. You will need to be careful how you do this because the fee cannot be based on or interpreted on a fee-splitting basis. You can take what she owes you, add the hours you worked, minus your costs and come up with a flat fee that will reflect a monthly charge based on an hourly rate. But again... this is no guarantee she will pay you. And if you do this and continue billing for her, in my opinion you are just looking for more headaches.

according to our contract she has to pay us a % of the amount collected.
we were not aware of the split fee law then in May.


I have cancelled the meeting with her tomorrow,  and according to my attorney he said to send her an invoice for the flat fee amount, and to cancel the contract with her by sending her a termination letter.
If she doesn't pay me then he will step in.   


   Thanks to everyone for all your help,
