Click here to learn more about connecting CentralReach to Tellus.
To utilize Tellus for EVV compliance:
- Your organization must be subscribed to CR Practice Management and CR Mobile to collect EVV information. Please complete the CR Mobile training.
- Your organization must be subscribed to CentralReach’s Tellus integration.
- Your organization must notify Tellus that you are using CentralReach as your EVV vendor, and take the Tellus Claims Console Training.
- Set up
- If Tellus rejects the file due to erroneous fields, it will be returned to CentralReach in the “Responses” section of the Claims Manager to be corrected and resent. Common rejection reasons include:
- Referring physician is missing. Complete the first name, last name, and NPI. (Complete this on the client authorization or on the claim itself).
- The NPI zip code should match the provider zip code in the Tellus portal. (This is the billing provider’s claim settings).
- For Telehealth, Tellus wants the Place of Service (POS) to be “Home,” not Telemedicine. Please refer to Tellus for details.
- After signing up for Tellus, a gateway will be set up in your CentralReach account to submit “claims” to Tellus.
- To capture EVV information for Tellus:
- Users must complete the appointment in CR Mobile and enable geolocation. Please note, Telehealth appointments must also be completed in CR Mobile, for EVV compliance.
- Users must have Visit Verification enabled in each service code. (Tellus only allows certain billable codes, such as H2012 BA, H2014 BA, H2014 BA GK, and H2019 BA.) Please ensure all service codes and modifiers meet Tellus and Medicaid requirements.
- After completing the appointment, users must navigate to Draft Timesheets to complete any remaining steps, such as adding session notes or correcting EVV errors.
- NEVER convert a CR Mobile appointment from the calendar. This may create a duplicate timesheet, which will then need to be deleted.
- If a draft timesheet is created, resolve any errors/next steps and submit or update the draft timesheet Depending on your organization’s workflow and permissions, an administrator may be required to correct some exceptions and submit the draft timesheet.
- If a draft timesheet is NOT created, the CR Mobile appointment was fully completed, and no exceptions/next steps were required. It directly converted to a billing entry.
- Once draft timesheets are approved and pre-billing audits are complete, generate the claim.
- Tellus EVV claims will be submitted through the Tellus gateway. Filter by payor to more easily send the correct claims to Tellus.
- If the file is accepted, sign into the Tellus claims console to review and release the claim.
- Select Worklist to view completed visits. Choose payor and search. All visits must be “Matched.”
- Review Worklist items, and check the Worklist items you want to release.
- Tellus will then convert the file to an 837 claim and send it to Medicaid.
- Providers can view the status of claims in the Tellus claim dashboard.
- ERAs will be returned from Medicaid to CentralReach, as per usual.
