Once you activate this feature, any claims that are currently in the "In Progress" section will automatically obtain Process and Payment reports from Medicare as they become available. This eliminates the need to click the Process button every time in order to update the claim status. In addition, if the claim has been fully paid, it will automatically move to the "Claims Completed" section after receiving its Payment Report.
To turn on this feature, follow these steps:
- Go to More
- Select Settings
- Select Configuration Settings.
- Select your practice name
- Go to Claiming-PRODA. Check the box for Automatically Retrieves Medicare Rpt.
- Click Save
Note: Claiming reports specifically relate to Bulk Billing, DVA and PCS. Patient claims, like Bill to Patient and Bill to Head of Family are sent to Medicare in real time.
