Non-Assigned Claims

Post by mbpros » Wed May 25, 2016 5:03 pm

I have a provider who is non-par with Medicare..and payments are supposed to go to the patients. For the provider I do NOT have the Medicare participating box check. In each case I do NOT have the Assignment box checked...And yet Medicare is sending payments to the provider indicating that the claims indicate assignment. Is there some other place in Medisoft to uncheck a box to ensure no assignment of benefits?

Thanks,
Steve

Hmm, how are you sending these claims? With Revenue Management? Are these professional or institutional claims?

Hmm, the Case Assignment indicator only affects new charges. Try adding the 3 accept assignment columns into the charges grid of Transaction Entry and make sure the proper columns are marked True. If they aren't, try clicking the Update All button.

All 3 columns are marked False. You said they should be marked True. Is that correct if they are NOT accepting assignment? Shouldn't the columns all be False (as they are) if the provider is not accepting assignment??

Steve, you are right. NOT Accepting Assignment should be False.
