The disposition configuration identifies how the claim will process based on the event code assigned. This step defines the action of the disposition (deny, suspend, informational, ignore) based on specific claim criteria. There can be multiple different disposition combinations based on key claim attributes. At least one disposition needs to be configured for the event code.
The following table details the primary fields used for the disposition. Fields with an asterisk (*) are required:
|The claim type used for this disposition. It could be All, or any of the types selected in the event code configuration.
|The claim identifier used for this disposition. It could be All, or any of the identifiers selected in the event code configuration.
|The submission type used for this disposition. Select All, New, Adjustment/replacement or Void/cancel
|The media type used for this. Select EDI POS, Paper, Electronic batch, VAN POS, Web POS or All
|Processing start date for the disposition. The date the defined disposition becomes active in the system.
|Processing end date for the disposition. The date the defined disposition becomes inactive in the system.
|Action code override info
|Action codes assigned on the claim that can be used to override this event code when it is set. This option is only valid for Deny and Suspend dispositions. To add action codes, select + Add action code.
The suspend disposition has a wide variety of fields that are used to control how the system manages claims that have events set to suspend. The primary types of configurations are below, each having their own set of options.
- To be submitted to an examiner for manual resolution.
- To auto-recycle for a specified period of time before the claim is denied or requires a manual resolution.
- To set service level agreement (SLA) information for the resolution task, so the claim doesn’t age past a deadline.
- To set a claim hold to stop claim processing for a specified number of days.
The fields to configure the suspend disposition are listed in the table below and are available once a suspend disposition has been selected:
