September 2015 EMR and PM Newsletter

New Beginnings

Back in 2011 DocuTrac’s president Arnie Schuster, Ph.D. wrote the following for our September Newsletter. We like what he wrote and it still hold true, so we decided to repeat it for 2015.

“September September is a month of new beginnings ushering in a renewal of commitment to learning, self improvement, and achievement in our personal and business lives. At DocuTrac we strive to remain a viable part of your business life, and are diligently working to remain relevant and above all helpful.”

With that goal in mind, not only have we expanded our program offerings, but have also increased our educational efforts with training and free webinars to help you keep up with the changes that affect your practice.

Using Claims Manager is key to getting paid after October 1st

Office TherapyIn order to file insurance claims with ICD-10 codes after the October 1st deadline, all claims will need to be generated using Claims Manager in Office Therapy®.

Claims generated using the File Insurance feature will be rejected since they do not include ICD-10 codes.

The Claims Manager in Office Therapy was created to accommodate the 5010 electronic claim filing format which became mandatory on January 1, 2012. At that time the File Insurance feature was kept in the program and became optional for instances where certain clearinghouses and insurance companies were not yet ready to receive 5010 claim files.

FileInsurance.pngSome customers continued to use the File Insurance feature. If you are using File Insurance to generate claims, please switch to the Claims Manager now to accommodate the ICD-10 codes and to minimize
claim rejections.
