Supported Browsers and Operating Systems
CentralReach actively tests and qualifies every software release over the latest version of Chrome and Safari browsers. However, CentralReach will support all of the major commercial browsers (Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox) by actively addressing issues reported over their latest versions.
- To allow CentralReach to maintain its continued focus on delivering great software, we will routinely withdraw support for certain browser versions and devices, as supporting legacy browsers inhibits the ability to innovate, ensure security, and deliver new features.
- Generally, as long as the browser is in compliance regardless of OS or device specifications, we will consider addressing issues on a case-by-case basis.
- Microsoft Internet Explorer is not recommended nor supported for any of the CR Products.
Recommended Mobile Devices
A major factor in mobile platform testing is the underlying mobile operating system and the feature set the specific version provides. CentralReach will qualify each mobile software release against the following major mobile device product lines: the OS version under test will be the latest version that the manufacturer/product line allows (general availability, not beta). CentralReach recommends the following mobile devices and corresponding operating systems for the CR Mobile application:
- Samsung Galaxy S9 and later S series of mobile phones.
- Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 and later A series of tablets.
- Apple iPhone 8 and following models updatable to the last iOS version.
- Apple iPad 6th Generation and iPad Pro 3rd Generation of tablets and following models updatable to the last iOS version.
While CentralReach is no longer certifying Amazon Kindle tablets, nor Internet Explorer, CentralReach is still accessible via this device and browser. However, for an optimal user experience, it is recommended to transition away from this device and browser in the near future.
Updated: August 2020
The Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration’s (AHCA) program has contracted Tellus to be used for Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) in Florida Medicaid regions 9, 10, and 11. CentralReach is integrated with Tellus to support seamless EVV claim submission.
Connecting CentralReach to Tellus
In order to link Tellus to your CentralReach account, providers need to sign up for Tellus, here. A gateway should also be set up in CentralReach for Tellus. Once users have an account with Tellus, they will have access to a portal to view the status of claims in Tellus’ claim dashboard.
- Have the referring physician set up.
- Utilize CR Mobile with Visit Verification enabled.
- Please note, if multiple services were provided for the same client on the same day, the claims should not be combined.
If billing the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) as the secondary, the primary payor must use the CR Mobile workflow with visit verification enabled. Users must then receive an electronic payment from the payor and generate a secondary claim.
Rendered Service Files
CentralReach will send a rendered service file with all required fields to Tellus. The “Responses” section of the Claims Manager will update with an “accepted” or “rejected” status. If the file is accepted, providers can log into Tellus’ portal and release the file for Tellus to generate an 837 claim to send to Medicaid. Tellus may take up to 4 hours to process the file and make available in the portal. If it does not appear in that time period, please contact Tellus support. If the file is rejected, it will state the information that was incorrect. Once the file is corrected, it can be resent to Tellus.
Standard clearinghouse fees apply.
