There are three types of Remote Monitoring (RM) as it relates to billing:
Only RM-Paid gets paid by Medicaid. All other RM services are funded by other sources and are invoiced using the Cost Center reports.
Setup Cost Centers
So the first step is to create Cost Centers for each RM service. Name each Cost Center the same as the service, then select that service when setting up the Cost Center, and select all corresponding clients. Check the "Exclude from DODD" if the billing is NOT Medicaid.
Note: there will be an actual HPC service starting with "RM-" for each RM service. And there will be a corresponding Cost Center (we recommend using the same name) with ONE RM service assigned to that Cost Center.
RM is documented in the Scheduler. A category in the Scheduler must be created for each RM service. Here is an article on how to add a Scheduler Category. Again, we recommend using the same name as the RM service. When entering Scheduler Events for RM services, select the RM service category and the appropriate clients (and staff if desired). The rate will be divided by the number of clients for each Event.
For RM-Paid services, the clients must have a waiver. For all other RM services which are not funded by Medicaid, a waiver is not necessary. However, those clients must be setup in an RM Service Cost Center which is excluded from DODD.
Note for Brittco: All rates and codes are stored in a separate 'static.rmrates' table. There are four places that these service names are stored:
