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%
