WATERBURY, Conn., Nov. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With Therap's electronic billing software, Kansas ID/DD providers are submitting electronic claims directly to KMAP (Kansas Medical Assistance Program). The comprehensive electronic billing solution handles the entire billing process for providers, covering service authorizations, billing/attendance records management, claim submission and status tracking.
"The electronic billing system is suitable for ICF/DD, community based programs (CBP), day habilitation and other ID/DD programs under the supervision of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services." – says Anna Keith, Therap's National Directors of Business Development. "Providers can send Medicaid claims directly to the KMAP system as well as track whether the electronically submitted claims have been accepted or rejected."
The electronic billing software offers flexible options for managing service authorizations and billing records. For each service outlined in a service authorization, the measuring unit, unit number and unit rate are specified. Flexible options are provided for tracking service authorization expiration dates and remaining balance.
Billable units can be generated directly from attendance records, service or goal tracking data. "Therap's web-based interface allows direct support professionals to record data at the point of service." – Anna says. "This reduces the likelihood of errors."
While generating billing data for day habilitation services/programs from attendance records, Kansas users are able to apply weekly bundling rules. When billing records are created, the system checks to see if the number of units are within approved weekly, monthly and service authorization limits. Therap electronic billing supports the Kansas Day Habilitation per diem unit calculation and the unique Targeted Case Management unit calculation methods utilized by KMAP.
Therap's electronic billing supports the ANSI X-12 EDI format for professional and institutional claims. KMAP's EDI team has approved Therap's ASC X12 version 5010 compliant software for claim production as of November 7, 2011. In addition to producing claims, users are able to track claim status and view remittance reports.
Therap electronic billing software also supports reconciliation reports, denial reports and unclaimed reports.
Therap's HIPAA compliant software are widely used in home and community-based services (HCBS) and other ID/DD provider settings for documentation and reporting. Web-based Developmental disabilities software services by Therap include incident reports, individual service plans, electronic health records, medication administration records (eMAR) and training management.
