Collections

After billing your patients and assigning them to payment plans, you need to be able to collect on balances that go unpaid. Offices have a few options for doing this. They could hire a collection agency. In general, this is a fairly easy way for the doctor to take care of the outstanding debt. The downside to collection agencies is that they generally receive a high percentage of the collected debt as a fee for collection.

Another option for performing collections is to utilize the Medisoft collections module to collect your debts from within the office. The collections module is called the Collection List. The Collection List can contain collection information for outstanding patient and insurance balances. The Collection List is designed to allow you to quickly move down the list making phone calls to the parties responsible for the outstanding debt.

To access the Collection List, click the Activities menu and Collection List.

Collection List Navigation

By default the Collection List will only display collection tasks that are scheduled to be performed on the current date.

You do have the ability to specify the range of dates you wish to see listed by specifying a beginning and ending date in the upper left corner of the screen.

If you want to see all items regardless of date, place a check mark in the field labeled Show All Ticklers. You will notice that the date fields are now unavailable to you.

By default, any ticklers for charges that are eventually paid in their entirety will be marked as deleted. If you only want to see the deleted ticklers, place a check mark in the field labeled Show Deleted Only.

If you would like to exclude deleted ticklers from your list, place a check mark in the field labeled Exclude Deleted.

If you would like to see all ticklers regardless of status, only the top box (Show all Ticklers) should be checked.

Tips and Tricks:

If you are using the Collection List to perform the collections process, you would not want to see deleted items. If an item is automatically being assigned the deleted status, that item does not have a remainder amount, and you would not want to contact that patient or guarantor as part of a collections process.

 

There are a few ways you can create a new tickler. Older versions of Medisoft utilized the aging reports to create tickler entries. These versions also allowed the creation of multiple ticklers for the same balance. Medisoft v11 and v12 are different. You must create new ticklers from within the Collection List.

In an article from FierceEMR today, it was reported that CMS and Medicare will be closely evaluating the use to Templates in creating patient notes. And paper templates and also included, not just electronic templates. Officials are worried that there might be improper insurance billing to medicare insurance and others. “[C]loned documentation will be considered misrepresentation of the medical necessity requirement for coverage of services due to the lack of specific individual information for each unique patient,” the notice states. “Identification of this type of documentation will lead to denial of services for lack of medical necessity and the recoupment of all overpayments made.”

The revised instructions state that CMS doesn’t prohibit the use of templates to facilitate record keeping, nor does it approve of or endorse any particular templates. Electronic records may involve any type of interface, not just sophisticated ones, with clinical decision and documentation support prompts. Templates can even be paper-based.

However, the agency discourages the use of templates that provide limited options for the collection of information, such as check boxes or predefined answers, or limited space to enter information.

The wait is over… the federal Health IT Policy Committee met to discuss public feedback on the Meaningful Use Workgroup’s initial recommendations published in June. You can view the “Meaningful Use Matrix” on the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health IT Policy Committee Web site. The matrix sets forth goals, objectives and measurements for meaningful use beginning in 2011 — the first year physicians are eligible to apply for incentive payments. The Committee also discussed workgroup recommendations for information exchange and certification/adoption requirements.

And of course Medisoft Clinical is an approved CCHIT software program, so this is good news.  Please contact us with any questions you may have on the Stimulus plan or EMR Software.  Medisoft Clinical uses the Bright Note technology to reduce physician time to click on an electronic chart note.
