Even the most organized physicians and other medical professionals can find it challenging to monitor the status of billing claims that have been submitted to the government for payment.
Which ones have been paid? Was that one returned? How many are still being processed for payment?
It can be a tedious and annoying time drain to keep track of all the various bills that are out there once they’ve been submitted. But no physician wants to lose a payment because of an invoice that fell through the cracks due to a diagnostic error, failure to follow up if some action is required, or some other discrepancy.
ClinicAid’s “Requires Action” Tab is a built-in reminder feature that can remind physicians about bills and keep them updated on the status of each and every bill.
If you are already using ClinicAid’s cloud-based billing service you may be unaware of this feature. And if you are not using ClinicAid you might consider checking it out as an option for quick and easy web-based billing in BC, Alberta and Ontario.
ClinicAid is the only billing program that is integrated with OSCAR EMR software for medical billing in BC, Alberta and Ontario to take over the cumbersome native billing process.
The “Requires Action” Tab works through a reporting system that is generated by return remittance from the Ministry.
When the user clicks on the “Requires Action” Tab in their ClinicAid system, data pops up to indicate which, if any bills haven’t been paid, which bills have been kicked back for some reason, and which bills require some kind of action to be processed.
It’s a handy feature that keeps billing issues that could easily be forgotten top of mind for a busy practice – that’s because unresolved billing issues will continue to appear in the “Requires Action” Tab until appropriate action is taken for each bill.
Keeping this data constant in view has shown to save practices thousands of dollars in returned invoices that haven’t slipped through the cracks.
The “Requires Action” Tab is just one more aspect of ClinicAid’s cloud-based billing system that allows physicians to focus on patient issues rather than worrying about invoices and whether they will be paid.
It’s another effective tool that helps physicians focus more attention on their patients instead of the administrative minutiae of their practice.
