Function-Specific Resolved Issues

Patient Account / Claims 

Customer-Reported Issue

Issue:

OP software was incorrectly populating the Supervising Provider’s Name in the Rendering Provider field on Claim files. This was causing claims to be rejected with the message, “Loop 2310D (Supervising Provider name) is used.  It should not be used when Loop 2310B (Rendering Provider) is used with the same information.  Loop 2310D is defined in the guideline at position 2500. Invalid Data:  NM1*DQ.”

Resolution:

Updated the software so that it does not render Supervising Provider’s name in the Rendering Provider field, ensuring that claims are not rejected for this reason.    


Electronic Billing Center / Adjudications    

Customer-Reported Issue

Issue:

When the end user approved an adjudication and had Autopay PC + CC or Autopay CC Only selected to deduct from PC (Patient Credit) or CC (Credit Card on File), OP software charged the card through Instamed but did not post the transaction information to the Patient Credit Account or the Claim.

Resolution:

Updated the software to ensure that, when the end user approves an adjudication and has Autopay PC + CC or Autopay CC Only selected to deduct from PC (Patient Credit) or CC (Credit Card on File) and OP charges the card through Instamed, that OP software successfully posts the transaction information to the Patient Credit Account and the Claim.


Electronic Billing Center / Adjudications / Unprocessed Claim Payments 

Customer-Reported Issue

Issue:

When the end user processed ERAs in the Unprocessed Claim Payments window, the OP software did not clear the Remit from the Unprocessed Claims window.  

Resolution:

Updated the software to ensure that, when the end user processes ERAs in the Unprocessed Claim Payments window, OP software successfully clears the Remit from the Unprocessed Claims window.
