4 IMPORTANT!!! You MUST clearly understand the difference between the following two terms: Network - the group of providers First Health, Coventry National Network, Beech Street, etc Payor the company listed on the insurance card to which claims are to be sent. This is fundamental to EDI processing with AHC. 4
5 Understanding Network Affiliates To process EDI and I-AHC network claims, you need to understand how to determine if a claim should be filed as in-network. The next slide will give you a list of your network affiliates which will require our Office Ally payor prefix AHCØ2. 5
6 Network Affiliates
7 Preparing your office software and completing the CMS-1500 form
8 Office Software It is not essential to have office billing software for our EDI. You can use the OA online tools. However, it is necessary to fully understand the following slides whether you are uploading from your office software or using the OA online tools. The OA training will explain the online tools and how to upload a file.
9 Office Software (continued) There are certain functions you need to be able to perform, such as: Printing to file Changing/adding carriers/payors Changing/adding plan names Having Internet access If you have problems with your office software, you will need to contact your software vendor.
10 Print to file function Instead of printing paper CMS1500 forms, use the Print to File Function to create a file to upload to Office Ally You will need to name the file as you create it. We suggest using a naming system to allow easy file recognition and sorting, i.e (yyyymmdd). 10
11 Things You Must Communicate 1. Payor prefix, if applicable, at the top of the CMS-1500 form 2. Payor name and address at the top of the CMS-1500 form 3. Insurance plan name or program name, i.e. network affiliate in box 11c of the CMS-1500 form 4. All other pertinent insurance claim form information must be completed correctly
12 Two Very Important Points Payor prefix The I-AHC payor prefix is AHCØ2. The payor prefix is used to identify claims that OA should send to I-AHC. This prefix (AHCØ2) must be used when the network logo shown on the patient s insurance ID card is on the AHC network affiliate list and the Term summary sheet instructs you to file the claim with i-ahc. The payor prefix, payor name and payor address will be placed at the top of the CMS-1500 form. Insurance plan name or program name for EDI and I-AHC purposes, you will need to use box 11c of the CMS-1500 form to identify the network, i.e. First Health, Beechstreet, etc that applies to the patient. If not, the claim may be delayed or paid incorrectly. The network will be on the insurance card.
13 AHCØ2 prefix, then name and address from insurance id card. Network name goes here.
14 Preparing Your Software For all I-AHC network affiliates, you will need to change the payor name in your database to include the I-AHC payor prefix, AHCØ2. For example, if the patient is insured with Mail Handlers Plan, which is covered under an I-AHC network affiliate, First Health, as identified on their insurance identification card, then the payor would be entered on the CMS-1500 and updated in your database with the AHCØ2 prefix in front of the payor name. AHCØ2 Mail Handlers P. O. Box 8402 London, KY 40742
15 Address Format is Extremely Important!!!! Correct Format - AHCØ2 Mail Handlers PO Box 8402 London, KY Incorrect Formats Do not use the formats below. AHCØ2 Mail Handlers PO Box 8402 London, KY Mail Handlers AHCØ2 PO Box 8402 London, KY AHC-Ø2 Mail Handlers PO Box 8402 London, KY AHCØ2 / Mail Handlers PO Box 8402 London, KY Mail Handlers AHCØ2 PO Box 8402 London, KY
16 Mail Handlers ID Card Example Network Name Payor Address 16
17 In another example, Principal is the payor (from the back of the insurance ID card) for First Health (in box 11c), then the payor is identified on the top of the CMS-1500 as AHCØ2 First Health, with the mailing address from the insurance identification card. AHCØ2 First Health Network PO Box 5319 Tampa, FL It is critical to include the I-AHC network affiliate in box 11c of the CMS First Health 17
18 First Health ID Card Example Network Name Payor Address 18
19 If the patient is insured with a company that is not an I- AHC network affiliate, then that payor is shown on the top of the CMS-1500 without the AHCØ2 prefix. BCBS P.O. Box 9907 Columbus, GA Therefore, in this example, BCBS would be in your payor database without the AHCØ2 prefix. 19
20 MultiPlan Exception Sometimes the ID card may not show the name of the network affiliate. MultiPlan serves as a 2 nd tier network for: Aetna Humana Cigna Great West United Healthcare If you do not have a direct contract with the carrier, MultiPlan will apply. It may not be mentioned on the ID card. 20
22 Double Checking Claims Make sure your claims include all required information before submission. In other words be sure the CMS-1500 form is completed properly and completely with special attention to the following: Does the payor address require the AHCØ2 prefix? Did you include the name of the network in box 11c? Are the patient s name and date of birth correct? Are the insured s id number and name correct? Did you complete boxes 11, 11a and 11b of the CMS-1500? 22
23 OA Training and Tools The OA training will train you on how to upload claims and use their tools online. Phone number is (866) Additional follow-up tools available from Office Ally include: Patient Look-Up View Claim History Inventory Reporting Code Search Claim Fix Eligibility Request 23
24 Disclaimer Integrated-ActivHealthCare (I-AHC) has arranged EDI processing for claims of I-AHC network affiliates through Office Ally (OA), a clearinghouse. I-AHC staff will assist you in resolving any processing issues you experience on i-ahc in-network claims.
