How should I deal with an Insurance take-back?

Let’s use the following example to answer this question. You have received a check from a carrier in the amount of $350.00. The carrier has issued payments totaling $400.00 but has taken back $50.00 previously paid for patient Andy Homer, producing a net check of $350.00.

Post 101 – ADJ REDUCE PAYMENT in the amount of $50.00 to patient Andy Homer. This is the take back.

Post the $400.00 in payments from the current EOB. The net payment relative to these postings will be $350.00, equaling the amount of the check.
