I've been erratic, I know, but that's life on the road (another broken hard drive!) and at home with two H1N1 kids. Here's the latest:
Anyway, one of the big clearinghouses re-submitted all the claims - good work. The others? How's this for customer service?
Apparently, we discussed it [reprocessing affected claims], but since we cannot identify the procedure codes rejected in error, we have to [sic] requested the clients resubmit the claims."
Quote straight to our EDI guys from a clearinghouse. Insane.
The biggest problem is that it will accept the data only for those children already in the registry, predominantly those born in state in the last 7-10 years or however long this has been running. Anyone older or from out of state who was not entered subsequently will have to entered manually now. I didn't check but I'd bet that's the majority unless you are limiting the vaccine to the younger ages right now.
Really, I mean it - interesting data ASAP. I have a ton of it!
