How long do any of you keep the superbills or charge tickets? Is there a required time?

Then the difficulty here is the physician for being lax on his/her notes.
Chart has to match billing. cindy

Thanks for the input. Would computer records count instead of the superbills. the posted charges should be what wason the superbill.

As a billing service and a custodian of the superbill I hold them for
7 years and that is at the advice of both my attorney and accountant.

I agree. We only keep our superbills for 1 year. We keep our daily and
monthly reports which has a summary of our charges, payments, etc. for 7
yrs.

Right. This is what we do--charts are the ruler. We only keep charge sheets
for three years or so. We do keep EOBs for seven, as they're verification of
the payment received.

Wouldn't the chart note be the ultimate support of billing codes? Why keep
extra paper?
