On this example I increased 3 rates and added a new test.

For an OPO copy your prior rate and in similar fashion show the updated rate in a new column.

When sending in your request be sure to include the effective date, an explanation as to why the fee's are being adjusted.

The requests need to be to us by the 15th of the month to be updated by the 1st of the next month. (For example, your request needs to be received by us by Nov. 16 to be included on the 12/1 update.)

Letters will be sent out on the first of the month when the new rates are posted.

The best way to make this request is to e-mail it to Barbara Campbell at barbara.campbell@palmettogba.com.
