Enter the sums of claims allowed amounts and the sum of gross charges for those claims to determine the amounts generally billed (AGB).

## AGB Formula

The following formula is used to calculate amounts generally billed:

AGB = SCA / SGC *100

• Where AGB is the amounts generally billed (%)
• SCA is the sum of claims allowed (\$)
• SGC is the sum of gross charges (\$)

## AGB Definition

What is AGB?

ABG, short for amounts generally billed, is a ratio or percentage of the total amount of claims allowed by health insurers and to the sum of the gross charges.

## Example Problem

How to calculate AGB?

First, determine the total amount of claims allowed by the health insurer. For this example problem, the total amount of claims allowed is found to be \$10,000.00.

Next, determine the total sum of all of the gross charges. In this case, the total gross charges come out to be \$30,000.00.

Finally, calculate the amount generally billed using the formula above:

AGB = SCA / SGC *100

AGB = 10,000/30,000*100

AGB = 33.33%
