Spartanburg, SC – April 10, 2013 – QS/1 is excited to release Medicare Part B compliance documentation, the first of its type on the market to help pharmacies that want to serve Part B customers while remaining compliant. With Medicare Part B regulations on the rise and audits becoming more routine, pharmacies that try to service Part B clients find themselves in dangerous territory. QS/1’s cutting-edge software helps pharmacies keep the proper paperwork within their pharmacy system.
QS/1’s Medicare Part B Compliance Documentation is the first-of-its-kind software solution that allows pharmacies who use NRx or PrimeCare Pharmacy Management Systems to serve Medicare Part B customer needs while keeping the necessary documents in the event of an audit. These customers may provide patients with diabetic testing supplies, nebulizer inhalation medications, immunosuppressive drugs or oral anti-cancer medications.
“Missing or incomplete documentation is the most common error that results in the repayment of claims,” said Chris Kinard, the QS/1 Market Analyst who spearheaded the new product. “Medicare Part B Documentation for pharmacy gives you the audit compliance tools for Part B products and services.”
During prescription processing, the prescription management system prompts the required Medicare documentation to print. Using an electronic signature capture device, the patient can sign once for all the required documentation. In the event of an audit, all of the system-generated Medicare-required documentation can be regenerated with the patient signature and date signed. QS/1 also ensures that the claim contains the date of pick-up as the date of service, as required by Medicare. Part B claims are not billed to Medicare until the required patient and physician documentation is signed and on-file.
“Audits are inevitable,” Kinard said. “QS/1 is committed to providing the tools and processes to help manage the Medicare documentation requirements and maintain compliance. QS/1 is the only pharmacy software vendor offering this type of solution.”
