Submitting Claims Through Connect Care
Some physicians both capture and manage professional billings in Connect Care. The service claims are submitted to Alberta Health by AHS professional billing services. Any rejections or clarifications are also managed by the AHS billing team.
Workers' Compensation Board Claims
Reports supporting worker compensation claims can be initiated from Letter Form links in pop-up and sidebar lists. The links open a SmartForm that facilitates appropriate data capture, and is sent automatically to WCB via Connect Care. The same links are available in navigator sections for emergency and outpatient charts.
Professional billing reports are available through the Reporting Workbench workspace. A generic report can be accessed and run. It can also be saved as one or more personal favourite reports. These can be tuned to focus on specific time intervals, contexts (e.g., inpatient, outpatient) or even billing codes.
