Announcing New Features
Adjudication and NCPDP D.0!
By: Kimberly Commito
Time to say goodbye to the old and embrace the new!
Fastrack is rolling out an entire new set of features
and functionality around the NCPDP D.0 format changes,
mandatory for online pharmacy claiming January 1st
2012. With the industry wide changes imminent –
replacing the NCPDP5.1 requirements – Fastrack has
incorporated new online adjudication features that allow
YOU the user to control your Pay Plans, has added
flexibility during the online adjudication transaction
process and has expanded the system in various ways to
manage and report on your adjudicated records.
Configuring Pay Plans
In an effort to address the various requirements for
each different pay plan that you might adjudicate claims
to, we have provided a Pay Plan Configuration area to
designate the segments, data fields and even the default
data the pay plan requires for submissions.
We have pre-loaded thousands of pay plans for you begin
the process of configuration, but of course you can add
your own pay plans on the fly.
Configuration options include the ability, by
transaction type, to indicate segments to send or not
send and/or data to within those segments to include or
not include in your transmissions.
The user can control what fields are required, optional,
mandatory, situational, or can even set a segment or
field to ignore to avoid pay plan rejections when
Copy features and on the fly edit capability from within
claim adjudication screens allows for easy setup and
management of the varying pay plans.
Adjudicating Your Claims
The new version no longer is dependent on modem
connectivity and transactions will be processed via
secure internet communications. Adjudicating your claims
has never been simpler!
In addition adjudication screens can now be modified on
the fly as well, making the process of claiming much
easier and flexible. All of the related data fields are
available for review prior to submission and responses
are brought back from the payer and stored historically
for ease of claim review.
New Adjudication Management options allow you to filter
for specific claims, work from a list to adjudicate
claims, and export data for reporting purposes:
