Extended monthly reporting, Medicare Part B deductible management and more!

January 22, 2021

With the latest version of EMSOW, you can check your patients’ Medicare Part B deductibles, get an extended end-of-month report, and schedule follow-up appointments from the Rendering Provider Portal. Also, you’ll find a new search option to facilitate your studies management.

If you’re interested to learn how EMSOW can help your practice, book a consultation! If you’re already using our PACS, scheduling, dispatching, or billing, please see the updates below.

 [#21222] Automatically tag studies of patients whose Medicare Part B deductible is met

Tired of manually tagging studies after checking if a patient has met their deductible? Then this update is for you! Now, when you check eligibility for Medicare Part B, EMSOW can also check if the deductible has been met, and tag the study with an appropriate tag (e.g., “2021 ded met”).

To set up this feature, open your billing connector settings (follow Setup → Billing → Billing Connectors in the main EMSOW menu). First, you need to enable the Tag exams as deductible met for “Medicare Part B” insurance checkbox. After that, type the desired tags to be applied to studies in the Deductible met tag and Deductible not met tag fields. If you type “{year}” in these fields, it will be replaced in the tag with the date of service year.
