VBA BILLING SERVICES

  • Users with View Access are no longer able to open the Apply Payments screen from the Invoice update screen or Clear Applied payments. The Add and Delete options on the popup menus of the Header Adjustments and Invoice Payments tabs as well as the Adjust option on the popup menu of Invoice Details section will be greyed out for these users.
VBA CARE MANAGEMENT SERVICES
  • Case Assignment now considers a Care Manager’s assignable Care Plans and Care Types when assigning cases.
VBA CLAIM SERVICES
  • The Configuration items, Case Index, Category, Default Action and Message Type have been changed to not allow modifications to the list as they are provided by Context 4 Healthcare and should not be changed.
  • Added the Delete List functionality to the Claim Batches update screen. This screen shows all claims within the current batch and allows the user to select and delete those claims.
  • Added Recalc WP process to the Claim Disability update screen. This process allows the user to change the Last Day Worked, Attended Physician, and Disabled By Physician dates and create new claims based on the new Disability Date and Exhaust Date.

Previous logic would pull the most effective value regardless of match strength even if a stronger, older match was available. This selection now pulls the strongest matches first and only pulls a newer match if that match is of equal strength.
  • Completed the process automation trigger for processing claims. This will allow the creation of process automation steps that happen when a claim is processed from batch similar to the process automation step for paid claims.
