Topic #1 • How do change the Patient Id on an PEF or Encounter?
Call up the PEF – 2 options • PERI – example – PERI 30 500 748159263 • EHIE – example – EHIE 30 500 12345678
On the PERI screen, put an ‘X’ next to the encounter you need to change
Click in the P ID field, and change the number. Then transmit the encounter.
Do the same thing if you use the EHIE function. Change the ID and transmit the encounter.
Topic #2 • How can I get my ICD9 codes in the order I need? • This is a new feature.
On the encounter entry screen, you have room to put up to 4 ICD9 codes on each services.
But sometimes, the way you put them on the encounter entry screen is not the way you want them to bill.
Now ICD9 codes can be given a position number. • Valid position numbers – 0 thru 4 • 0 will keep the ICD9 code from billing • 1 thru 4 will mark the order they go on the CMS 1500 form or how they are billed out electronically. • The position numbers are not required.
The position numbers can only be entered on the encounter entry page. They will populate the CPOD screen but you can’t change them on the CPOD screen.
Topic #3 • Why don’t I get a 4th Registration label?
The Income Assessed Date on Registration must match the Current Assessment Date on the Save & Third Party page. If they don’t match, you don’t get a 4th label.
Topic #4 • When do I use all 9’s for the income? • NEVER EVER
On the registration page, if the patient will not give their income, leave the income field blank. Blank income on portal is the same as all 9’s on bridge.
