Fee Schedule Overview
Within MediRecords, schedules are used to manage Medicare Benefits Scheme (MBS), Dept. of Veterans Affairs (DVA), Health Fund, and Third Party fee schedules. Each of these have individual item numbers with different pricing based on payer and payee. Schedules can be assigned to Practices and Providers, so that only they are able to use them.
To access the list of all available schedules, first click More to reveal a drop-down list, then click Settings.
When starting to use MediRecords, there are several schedules available by default. They are classified as Supplied, and are able to be seen by clicking on Filter and Yes under Supplied.
If you would like to bill based off a private schedule or another schedule not listed, the system is able to create a Custom Schedule.
The different types of custom schedules able to be created are:
MBS Derived - Uses the MBS item codes and fee schedule with a fixed margin (either dollar value or percentage) on top of the MBS fee.
MBS Custom - Uses the MBS item codes, however each item is assigned a custom fee.
Third Party - Uses the item codes and fee schedule from a Third Party provider's fee schedule.
Custom - A custom fee schedule with unique item codes, unrelated to either the MBS or a Third Party fee schedule
For more information about how to create a custom schedule, please refer to our article here.
