Over the next several blogs, we are going to be providing you info on How To create a new Referring Provider, To Get Started, Open Medisoft Medical Billing Software Program, Click on the referring provider icon, or click on LISTS: REFERRING PROVIDERS.

Medisoft Referring Provider Entry – Address Tab;
Code: The referring provider code can contain up to five alphanumeric characters and identifies the referring provider in the program.

Inactive: For information on the Inactive check box, click here.

Last Name, First Name, Middle Initial: Enter the provider’s demographic information. A referring provider can be a doctor, nurse, technician, or physician’s aide who deals with patients. Enter the referring provider’s name in the name fields and his or her address and phone numbers in the correct fields.

Credentials: Credentials gives you seven spaces to enter characters indicating the referring provider’s credentials, such as MD, Ph.D., RN, DO, DC, etc., or whatever applies.

Street, City, State, Zip Code: Enter the provider’s demographic information.

NOTE: When entering an address, the focus of the program moves to the Zip Code field after the Street field. Enter the zip code. If that code has already been entered in the program database, the city and state information is automatically entered in their respective fields. If the zip code is not found in the database, the focus of the program returns to the City and State fields for your input. This information is then saved to the database and available the next time the zip code is entered. For more information on this feature, see Program Options – Data Entry Tab.

After entering a Zip Code and auto populating the City and State fields, if you then go back to the Zip Code field and change the value entered without first saving it, the system will not change the City and State value previously entered, producing an inaccurate record. Use care when changing an auto populated City and State field without first saving the initial entry.

E-Mail/Phone Numbers: Enter the referring provider’s E-Mail and other Phone Numbers in the spaces provided.

Medicare Participating: This check box should be clicked if the referring provider is committed to working with Medicare.

Specialty: If you are sending electronic claims, select the referring provider’s special field of practice. If you need to use a specialty code that is different than the usual code, select “Not Listed” and enter your specialty code in the data entry box that appears next to the Specialty field.

NOTE: This field is not used for sending paper claims unless you have modified your claim form to include this information.
