The Texas Medicaid report calculates the percentage of patient encounters that are considered as an encounter with a Medicaid Patient, as per the state of Texas' guidelines.
The definitions and requirements for this report were specifically written to meet Texas' standards, though these could be the same for a number of other states.
The report can be filtered by Providers, Offices, and Office Visit Start and End Dates.
This report will separate encounters into three categories-
- Medicaid - Encounters will display in this group if the charges were billed to Medicaid. This will include encounters on claims that have been paid and closed and those that have been billed but are not yet paid.
- Non-Billed Medicaid - Encounters will display in this group if the charges were not billed to Medicaid, but the patient had active Medicaid insurance on file at the time of their encounter. To be sure that this is valid insurance even though it may not be billed, MacPractice checks for the Plan Type of Medicaid, a Start Date on the insurance before the date of the encounter, and for the Subscriber ID to be filled in.
- NOT Medicaid - Encounters will display in this group if they don't belong in the other two. This will include all encounters that were never billed to Medicaid and have no indication that the patient currently held Medicaid insurance at the time of their encounter.
All categories display the following columns:
- # of Encounters: This is the number of Encounters in which transactions occurred.
