  • Added Previous Months Billed to the order entry/edit screen to ensure proper billing of capped rental items requiring monthly modifiers.

  • Added ability to enter Patient Notes on multiple categories at the same time by holding down the SHFT-CTRL key

Announcing New Features Related to

Pharmacy Online 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 transmitting claims.


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.




Adjudication Management

New Adjudication Management options allow you to filter for specific claims, work from a list to adjudicate claims, and export data for reporting purposes:




Look for a listing of WebEx Sessions on Fastrack’s Online Training Center!  We will be offering FREE WebEx classes regarding this new functionality so you can be ready to switch on January 1st and use these exciting new features!
