Therap Allows for Seamless Transition to Fee-for-Service Billing

Join our free webinar on Fee-For-Service overview within Therap. It is a prevailing payment model for services in several states. Payments are unbundled and paid for separately, so every time patients have a doctor’s appointment, a surgical consultation, or a hospital stay, these third-party payers are billed for each visit, test, procedure, and treatment provided, even though some of these may not be needed, or supported by evidence-based data.

As the leader in EHR documentation and software solutions for I/DD service providers, Therap has an electronic billing system that will help agencies and providers across the U.S. get up and running with direct-Medicaid billing. Therap has trading partner agreements with Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) for Medicaid claim submission in several states. Therap is the billing agent for providers in more than 45 states including Virginia, West Virginia and New Jersey.

The Electronic Billing service assists providers funded by Medicaid. Agencies can create and send professional claims for a single or multiple individuals and for one or more of their service lines. Therap’s HIPAA-compliant billing system is based upon point-of-service documentation to ensure accuracy and integrity of service delivery. This allows for all billing claims to have appropriate documentation — backing up every claim that the provider would submit for billing.  

Therap’s Billing Features Include:

  • Calculate billing data from notes and attendance data entered by support staff
  • Track prior authorizations and service utilization
  • Submit claims directly to Medicaid
  • Create, submit and track fee-for-service claims
  • Generate numerous billing and utilization reports

Webinar on Keeping Track of Fee For Service in New Jersey, March 6, 2018

Join our upcoming webinar on Keeping Track of Fee For Service in New Jersey on March 6 from 11 AM to 12 PM EST. New Jersey’s conversion to the FFS model of reimbursement has presented challenges for providers and Therap. FFS requires a method of documentation the NJ providers have not used in the past. Therap’s workflow approach facilitates the development and auditing of FFS claims. In addition Therap created a unique rounding factor for DCFS, produced a feature to manage multiple NPI number, produced a feature to manage a variety of Prior Authorization approaches, facilitated the Medicaid eligibility process and responded to other factors that impacted the complex claiming process.

Therap’s workflow approach to billing allows providers to track the billing process from Prior Authorization, to service delivery, to utilization tracking, to claim submission, and reconciliation in a timely and easy to track procedure.

Press Release :: Therap Processing NJ Fee-for-Service Claims with Electronic Billing

Disability Documentation Software Generates Medicaid Fee for Service at NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities Providers

Therap Services, leader in electronic documentation software for Developmental Disability service providers, has implemented New Jersey’s Fee-for-Service at multiple agencies in the state. The Fee for Service (FFS) pilot is a Medicaid based service reimbursement system which is being adopted by the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities and will replace the current contract based system of reimbursement. FFS is a service model that reimburses providers for services rendered.

Therap’s Electronic Documentation System is processing claims for the New Jersey DHS, Division of Developmental Disabilities Fee-for-Service Implementation. Therap is also processing claims for Department of Child and Family Services (DCF) services.

Therap’s electronic documentation system has been implemented by providers serving I/DD and the broader LTSS community. Therap uses different options for processing claims based on the responsiveness of the various state systems. Therap uses national clearinghouses and has direct Trading Partner agreements.

Ken Slavin, Northeast Business Development Director, states, “Therap is processing claims in 25 states and the Billing Specialists thought they had seen every billing system possible. They were wrong. NJ offered some unique challenges and it took a few weeks to work out the kinks and modify Therap’s claiming capability to meet those challenges, but that goal was accomplished and Therap users are processing claims.”

Therap’s billing applications automatically exports claims in the ANSI X12 837 formats for processing. Once adjudicated X12 835s with remittance advices can be uploaded from the state portal or delivered to the provider by Therap. Providers in NJ have been uploading the adjudicated claims to for faster turnaround. Once the adjudicated claims are imported reconciliation reports can be run and denied or rejected claims can be corrected and resubmitted. For the Fee-for-Service pilot in NJ, Therap’s claim templates have facilitated batch processing of claims with multiple NPI (National Provider Indicator) numbers. A Prior Authorization copy feature was customized to facilitate processing of NJ’s weekly prior authorizations, Also a new custom report that captures service overlaps was developed.

Therap’s billing features integrate with the service outcome/goal tracking documentation features to provide excellent audit trails. Billing data can be generated using case notes, attendance data, manual entry, or service outcome/goal tracking documentation. During the implementation of the FFS pilot, billing data can be tracked with a number of reports and in all steps of the claiming process such as Billable, Submitted, Paid, Rejected, or Denied. Therap also provides codes that link service line items to an external accounting system and general ledger.

Therap National Conference QA tools Presentation: User Presentation, 2016 Therap National Conference

Josh-Dezurik-form-Dungarvin,-MN-151112Like most companies using Therap, Dungarvin spent a tremendous amount of time and effort rolling out Therap. However, once Therap was rolled out to the programs, there was a question of what do we do with this massive amount of information that we are collecting each day. There are countless reports that can be reviewed, but there is only so much time in the day and the sophistication level of each user varies greatly. To tackle this issue Dungarvin began developing a Quality Dashboard using Therap data to monitor key service elements. This Dashboard tool has now been largely completed and Dungarvin is starting to see the effect of leveraging the information. This session will cover the Dungarvin Quality Dashboard tools and demonstrate the ability to meet the needs of a diverse audience while still producing actionable results for multiple organizational levels. Additionally Dungarvin and Therap began a partnership to develop these tools on the Therap Business Intelligence platform. With this joint venture these tools can also be a window into what the business intelligence tool will provide. You’ve already spent the time entering the information into Therap, now see what insights this information can provide through analytics.

This session will provide a quick overview/explanation of the tools as well as time for Q & A.
