Description

This is a detailed payment posting report that captures the applied transaction details, the balance amount after posting, and the payment details. Additionally, the report also shows the amount allowed and the portion that is applied to copay, coins, or deductible per the remit. Multiple Excel exports are available in the report with varying levels of information.

Significance

1. This vital report highlights all the payment postings done in the practice during a specific accounting date range. The report shows where the money was applied, the balance after posting, the next action, who applied the money, and the date it was applied. It will also show any takebacks.

2. The I6 report has two direct Excel output options: summary and detail; users need not wait for the report to load on the screen and can, instead, direct the output towards Excel.

3. The report shows a posted summary at the header, and it indicates whether the money applied is from the current month’s deposits or another month. The column ‘Deposit carry forward’ shows money from the prior month’s deposits applied in the current month. This helps users quickly identify payments and decide whether to account for them in the current month or exclude them from the current month’s reporting based on their accounting practices.

4. The I6 report includes information on primary, secondary, and tertiary insurance of the encounter in both the summary and detailed Excel outputs.

5. I6 report has ‘Payer Type’ and Case Type shown in the output. The earlier column name ‘Type’ is renamed to ‘Payment Type’.

6. The attending physician (Box #76 of UB04 claims) and supervising provider are present in the detailed Excel and CSV outputs. The revenue code for UB04 claims is also available in the detailed and summary Excel and PDF outputs.

Utility

1. Provide a check number in the search criteria, and the report will display the details regarding all the postings done against the specified check number.

2. You may also use this report to get a view of the posting summary in a date range and get patient details with the exact lines against which the postings were done.
