View/Editing Claims

  • Dark
  • PDF

Article summary

The View/Edit Claims page is where to view and edit the data in individual claims.  This page displays anywhere the     button is clicked. For example, when reviewing Pending Approvals, Rejected Claims or Claim Reminders in the Manage Claims page, click the     button in that section to see the individual claims that comprise that category. 

If trying to review a list of claims (such as a list of Rejected claims), the easiest way to view each claim from the View/Edit Claim page is by selecting the (right) Next and (left) Previous arrows. Clicking these arrows will load the next or previous claim on that list for review. 

In addition, the Return to Claim List arrow  will navigate back to the claim list this claim was viewed from.

In the Claim list, start viewing and sorting by the desired data columns. 

Resizing Columns

On any grid, like the Claim List, the header margins can be resized. Simply hover over the edge of the column until the pointer arrow turns into a double arrow. Then left click on the mouse and drag left or right to resize the column headers. 

Approve Transmit

After saving a claim, it can now be approved to transmit by administrative users and users given this privilege under Manage Users page. 

Once done editing and reviewing the claim

  1. Click button.
  2. A Claim Valid pop-up will display.  Click Approve Transmit Now link. If there are no errors, this action will transmit the claim. 
  3. Check the Manage Claims page for any possible errors. 

Archiving a Claim

Archiving a claim will remove the claim from the Manage Claims menu. This will still preserve access to the historical data for reference or auditing purposes. Use thebutton at the bottom left of the claim form to archive a claim. Claims can also be archived in bulk from a claim list by selecting "Archive" from the Selected Actions drop down menu.

How to "un-archive" a claim 

To un-archive a claim, one should search for the claim from the Search page, click into the claim from the list and then click the button on the top of the claim. This action will re-validate the claim and return the claim to the Manage Claims menu on either the Rejected Claims list or Claims Pending Approval depending on if any data errors were detected.

If the "Transmit Approval" setting is turned off, ensure that any necessary changes are made before clicking Save Claim. With Transmit Approval turned off, claims that have no errors will immediately queue for re-submission to the payer.

Show History / Notes

Also notice the button on the bottom right of the claim. To view the whole history of changes and notes related to a claim, click on this button. This shows the whole cycle of the claim from submission, archive, edit, re-submission, etc. It also shows any notes you have added to this claim. To add notes, enter the information in the Add Notes field on the bottom and then click     button.

Please note that in Show History / Notes is an extremely useful tool for investigating at what "level" the claim was rejected. A claim can be rejected from:

  • Claim.MD
  • Payer's Trading Partner
  • Payer Directly

After the date of the rejection, it will provide which of the three entities the rejection is generating from, and provide the specific event that it is causing the rejection.

Example of a Claim rejected at the Claim.MD Level

Viewing ERA from the Show History / Notes

  1. Click on the Show History/Notes button.
  2. Click on the EFT/Check# or Full ERA link to view the ERA.

Adding a Reminder

To add a reminder along with the note, click the Add Reminder dropdown on the bottom right of the Show History / Notes box, select the time period you want it to display in the Manage Claims section, and then click     button. Clicking Now option for example, will immediately put the reminder on the Manage Claims list. Clicking "in 1 week" will make the reminder display in 1 week from the date you set it. 

Using Reminders
If you wish to temporarily set aside a specific claim for future follow-up but want to archive it for the time being, you can generate a claim reminder in the Show History/Notes section. This way, the claim will appear as a reminder in one week, two weeks, one month, etc. However, it won't persistently remain in the Manage Claims view until you're prepared to address that reminder.


Please note, not all payers or their claim submission trading partners allow attachments.

 Faxing Claims: Page Limit and Procedures Guidelines

Our faxing system has a maximum capacity of 30 pages per transmission. When faxing claims, it's crucial to consider the page limitations to ensure successful and efficient processing. Below are important guidelines to follow when submitting claims via fax:

  1. Page Limit:
    • The maximum number of pages allowed for outgoing fax transmissions is 30.
    • Each claim submission comprises two pages, including both the front and back views.
    • Claims with more than six procedures may require additional front/back pages, adjusting the overall page count accordingly.
  2. Page Allocation for Claims:
    • For claims with six procedures or less, the total faxed pages should not exceed 28.
    • This accounts for the standard two-page allocation per claim and accommodates the possibility of additional pages for claims with more than six procedures.

By adhering to these guidelines, you ensure that your faxed claims fall within the specified page limits, facilitating seamless processing and minimizing potential issues. 

To send a claim by mail:

It is advisable to use this button specifically when creating tickets for individual claims.
