Information about Fee Schedules

Billing / Fee Schedules Fee Schedule Asking for a Fall Back Rate

When adjusting fee schedule start and end dates, the fee schedule needs a fall back rate. A fall back rate is what the system will use if one situation does not exist. If you receive an error about the fallback rate, that is due to the original fee schedule being deleted.

To fix this, delete the dated rates for a fee schedule and add a new one starting without a date range. Then, a range can be added after the fee schedule is linked.

Billing / Fee Schedules Fee Schedules

Fee Schedules are used to organize your payor’s rates in one single location within CentralReach. Fee Schedules allow you to link your payors insurance plans together and easily apply one defined rate across all plans for a specific service code.

Billing / Fee Schedules Rate vs. Agreed Rate in the Fee Schedule

When adding a fee schedule to a service code, enter a rate and an agreed rate. The rate is the amount being charged for a specific service, while the Agreed Rate is the service rate negotiated with an insurance carrier. The agreed rate is typically lower than the rate. If there is no agreed rate, then it should be equal to the rate.

The owed amount in the Billing grid and billing reports can be calculated based on the agreed/contracted rate.
