Step 1: Add Weblink under weblink tab. Step 2:) Add Vendor/Insurance Company Name under the LABS tab. Step 3.) Enter Vendor details/ and LOGIN credentials within Note section of Lab Tab w/in Labs. Step 4.) Attach weblink to Vendor/Ins Company entry under LABS.
Now, it is very easy to search for a weblink as well as create an easy way for selected user to update login credentials for vendors and insurance company sites. Changes are auto-reflected universally, therefore easing the "WHO CHANGED THE PASSWORD" battles.
Perhaps the easiest thing is for SD to create a VENDORS list similar to that of Labs and Pharmacies.
SD WONDERWORKERS!!!! (Tyson and all those listening) It WOULD BE FABULOUS to perhaps be able to assign a Color to Plans. All Pts with appts under that Allowance Table would appear as the selected color.
To make me smile and applaud for all practices, the ideal situation would be to provide users the ability to assign a color to an Insurance Company, Plan and Allowance table
WHY ALLOWANCE TABLE?
**Practices to which are Third Party contracted ( A GREAT MANY) need a visual for Schedulers to see which patients,ie ( Risk and Income) are associated with that day.
*** Assigning it only to plans will not work if the providers negotiated tier is different for that product within that insurance company.
**** Assigning only to companies, would defeat the attempt entirely, as again, if contracted w/ TPP, only certain products of that company may be applicable to the Risk and Income.
SD is awesome at giving options.
Allowing practices the option of color by Plan or Allowance Table would be excellent.
ALLOWANCE TABLE REPORTS:
Practices NEED the following reports.
1.) Practice Income by Allowance Table
2.) Adjustments by Allowance Table.
3.) Patients by Allowance Table
This request is OVER DUE, a great number of practices are contracted via Third Party Payers. Secondly, you must consider the newer wave of "internal TPA"/ Shared Access that is now becoming very prevalent within companies that practices consider to be DIRECT.
Example: Aetna Direct PPO shares its member roster with several other "Direct" companies, such as Guardian. Shared Access will differentiate amongst product types of EACH plan. Certain Aetna products may not fall under Shared Access with Guardian. Therefore, only SOME of the Aetna Company Patients would be estimated at Indemnity , and others may fall under a Guardian Allowance table for a provider.
This becomes more complex for Practices to which not all providers are contracted the same.
SD CAN handle this, but WE NEED A WAY TO MONITOR our risk and income.
as a participating provider I find it difficult to run a report by insurance company, I would like to see Production by carrier with write-off and collections
please consider this enhancement request.
Yes, but if you use the code 50.90 it is almost impossible to quickly track practice risk when a Third Party Agreement is covering the plan, or if a Direct Contract has a shared access agreement with another insurance company or TPA. This is why SD must correct this by creating Income and Risk Reports based upon which ALLOWANCE TABLE is posted to plan. Currently, SD and PW leave practices in the dark when it comes to Shared Access and TPA agreements.
