Electronic Billing :: Make sure that you upload your 835s

Graphic showing 5010 Electronic Billing

If the title of this post doesn’t make any sense to you, you probably don’t do any electronic Medicaid billing.

If you do, you will know that when you do electronic billing through Therap, the file that we send off on your behalf is called an 837.

Once you claim has been processed you will then receive back another file called an 835.

Probably the most important muber in the 835 is the TCN (in some states it is called an ICN) number.  This is the number assigned by your Medicaid processor to your claim.  By having this number we can then directly link the claim you have in Therap to the claim Medicaid […]

Preparing for 2012.0 Downtime :: Use it as an Emergency Drill

Release Notes, User Guides and Preview of Therap 2012.0

When Therap 2012.0 goes live on January 15th, there will be a significant amount of downtime (we are currently estimating about 15 hours).

The reason for all this downtime is that we have to run some operations on the database to change it to work with the new application (think of all the changes we are making in the ISP Plan workflow and presentation).

While we understand that this is a major inconvenience for you, it is unfortunately a fact of life with the nature of our system.

My suggestion is that you use the downtime to make sure that you have all the correct procedures in […]

Getting ready for 5010 billing on January 1st, 2012

Graphics of 5010 standard Electronic Billing

Effective January 1, 2012, a federal mandate requires that providers use the HIPAA Version 5010 standard for electronic claim transactions.  

We are pleased to announce that Therap has implemented Version 5010 related changes that will impact all providers using Electronic Billing. 
This impacts customers doing direct Medicaid billing in Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Kansas, Minnesota, New York, and Wyoming where Therap is certified for 5010 billing. We anticipate the same requirements for users in Colorado, however, the state has not yet completed testing.

We have attached a summary of the required changes to provide you with information that will assist you in meeting the January 1, 2012 compliance requirement.

HIPAA 5010 Billing in Therap

As I said in yesterday’s post, Therap 9.2 which we will be releasing on November 20th contains a number of updates as part of our transition from the 4010 to 5010 billing standards.

5010 billing is due to start on January 1st, 2012, however we are still in the process of finalizing the testing that we are doing with the states where we do electronic billing.

For the time being, please do not update the new fields and formats we have as these may actually interfere with your current (4010).

Electronic billing is a very fickle creature and individual states to no always do things exactly according to standards, so please wait for specific instructions for your state.
