COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Therap is currently working in Ohio with developmental disability providers to implement the new Flat File Upload option that allows providers to upload 837 claims, generated on Therap, on to the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) eMBS portal. Ohio providers previously entered single claim information manually in the state's system; the addition of the special file upload feature within Therap will now allow providers to upload bulk claim files into the state system in a single step.
Ohio provider agencies currently use Therap to meet various documentations needs, including demographics, person-centered individual support plans, care plans and more. The new file upload option will further streamline the documentation of service delivery and claims process for providers implementing Therap's billing software.
Therap's billing applications automatically export claims in the ANSI X12 837 format. Billing features integrate with the service outcome/goal tracking documentation features to provide excellent audit trails. Billing data can be generated using case notes, attendance data, manual entry, or service outcome/goal tracking documentation with a number of reports and through all steps of the claiming process such as Billable, Submitted, Paid, Rejected, or Denied. Therap also provides codes that link service line items to an external accounting system and general ledger.
Therap's electronic claim generation process meets the HIPAA Version 5010 standard for electronic claim transactions. Its billing applications allows for daily, weekly and monthly unit capture for billable services with rounding algorithms that calculate an array of time increments. Therap's billable service tracking modules record services from the point of delivery. The attendance information of individuals receiving a specific type of service is recorded and used to generate billable 837 claims. Services may range from hourly to daily and are predefined for the individual receiving services.
Therap Services provides secure, web-based documentation, communication and electronic billing services to over 1800 intellectual disability providers across the United States.
Therap's solution is used in HCBS Waiver, ICF/IID, LTSS and other services to document residential and community based supports, employment supports, case management, incident reporting, staff training and electronic billing claim submissions directly to Medicaid.
