WATERBURY, Conn., May 1, 2014 /NEWS.GNOM.ES/ — Therap Services, the leader in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities electronic health record (EHR) and software solutions, has announced I/DD services provider agencies utilizing Therap Services Billing Support solutions in Kansas can now bill within the required billing unit validations to Amerigroup, Centene’s Sunflower Health Plan and United HealthCare Managed Care Organizations (MCO’s) in Kansas.
The Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) has outlined billing guidelines for Day Support Services, Code T2021, with Unit limitations per day, per week, as well as monthly and annual service limits for individuals. Therap Services electronic billing solutions assists I/DD service providers in meeting the KanCare and the Kansas Medical Assistance Program (KMAP) Medicaid audit compliance regulations.
Jeff Case, Central Region Director at Therap Services states: “The Therap team is committed to supplying I/DD Providers in Kansas the most effective software solution for direct submission to the state Medicaid system. We anticipate agencies supporting individuals with disabilities will benefit greatly from the Therap System’s efficiencies as they seamlessly document supports, bill electronically and track utilization of services.”
Each month, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Service Providers utilize Therap’s electronic Billing Support applications for submission of professional claims, institutional claims, for tracking of service authorizations, completion of goal-related data to validate service provision and attendance data. A service is configured to generate billable units automatically from its attendance data or ISP data that are already entered into Therap by agency staff. Therap’s Billing Support module uses an integrated approach for creation of claims/invoices, regardless of whether an agency will submit their ANSI X-12 837P and 837I claims electronically or through the professional paper claim form (CMS 1500). The option to enter units manually is also available. The automated generation of billing units using information from different Therap modules ensures a simplified experience for our customers.
Therap Services electronic billing applications assist providers in avoiding any over-billing errors and unnecessary recoupments of payments for services. Therap’s electronic Billing Support applications incorporate a variety of billing reports including a utilization report that tracks service units utilized over a given period of time. This report grants providers the ability to chart percentages of total utilization, plan and monitor service units, reduce number of unused service units and view remaining days, expiration status, and unit costs.
Therap Services applications are certified as an electronic health record (EHR) under CCHIT’s Long Term and Post-Acute Care Standard. Therap has been reviewed by SOC 2 Report which is relevant to the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy practices of a service organization. The SOC 2 Report for Therap’s Intellectual and Developmental Disability software solution covers the AICPA Trust principles; a set of professional attestation and advisory services based on a core set of principles and criteria that address the risks and opportunities of IT-enabled systems and privacy programs.
