Looking back at the 2012 Therap National Conference

Now that I have (almost) recovered from three days of intense Therap-ing it’s quite remarkable to look back on what went on.

I think probably the most remarkable thing is how little I was personally involved in.  With 16 sessions running in parallel it just wasn’t possible.  What I did hear though as I walked the corridors was how impressed everyone was with the level and quality of presentations both by Therap staff and Therap users.  Several times I heard from my colleagues (and the same would be true for myself) that they had learned things from the attendees at a session.

There are now many, many people at Therap conferences who know more about Excel and pivot tables than I do! […]

Almost… but I'll take it

What a great ending to the Superbowl.  As the Giants were completing their drive I was so sure that my prediction from yesterday was going to come true.

And then Bill Belichick proves again what a scoundrel he is by letting the Giants score and ruining my plan.

Ah well, the Giants still won and there is now no doubt as to which is the best of the Mannings.

Wee brothers win again.

I just wish the trophy was presented more like a soccer cup final trophy

And to celebrate, come to our conference in the shadow of Giants Stadium!

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 […]

Therap's IRMA Interface ready to roll with OPWDD in New York

Graphic showing OPWDD

For Therap user in New York, we are very excited to be moving into the next phase of IRMA implementation.

You should have received the following email from OPWDD.

If you didn’t be sure to get in touch.

I am the OPWDD project manager for the IRMA Voluntary File upload project and have been given your contact info from Therap Services. OPWDD has been working with Therap on developing a process to upload the incident data recorded in your system and share it with the Incident Report and Management Application (IRMA). This will alleviate the need to perform duplicate entries of incidents in both systems.

We are now entering the user testing phase of the project […]

Interfacing between Therap and IRMA in New York

Graphic showing Therap Modules and HIPAA Compliant

With 2012.0, Therap released it’s interface between General Event Reports and OPWDD’s IRMA (Incident Report Management Application)

You can read all about how it works here.

It should be noted that although the interface is live now, Therap needs to let the IRMA team know when each customer is ready to submit live data.  Until that is done, all data submitted to IRMA from Therap will be considered test data and deleted nightly.

Remember that to be ready to use the IRMA module, you need to add TABS Program IDs to each program and Individual TABS IDs to your IDF Extension.

If you have any questions or are ready to switch over […]

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.

Static and Dynamic documents

One of the things that makes Therap as powerful as it is is the way that we communicate all the latest information to all of your staff at once.

However, sometimes there are times when you want to see a form not in it’s latest version with all the latest updates but as it was at the time that the form was approved.

This is particularly the case with plans and most notably ISP Plans.  Think about all the elements of an ISP Plan that are inherited from other forms (such as the IDF).  What if these change on the IDF, should they change on the ISP Plan?  What if a linked IPOP or ISP Program changes?  Should the ISP Plan link […]
