All Encounters in which errors were identified in the Prep Run end up on the Prep Errors list. This is a cumulative list with items added and removed every time a Prep Run is executed. Ideally, the biller will review the list, correct all errors, and perform another Prep Run to clear the list before proceeding to the Generate Claims step so that the list remains manageable. Perform the following steps to Review Prep Errors:
The Prep Errors screen will appear, as shown below.
The current date will appear in the Corrected column, and your login ID will appear in the User column, as shown below. Note: This is purely for your reference; it does not necessarily indicate that the error is corrected properly. That will be determined by whether the item drops off the list after the next Prep Run.
Note: In a busier practice it may be impractical to hold up your clean claims by waiting until all Prep Errors are corrected before generating claims, but care should be taken not to let the Prep Errors accumulate over time.
