What is the problem?
An EOB is needed to provide to a secondary payer but was not delivered by the primary with the ERA.
What fix is Kareo providing?
We are now advising practices to utilize a versatile and easy to use solution to generate EOBs.
The solution is called Medicare Remit Easy Print (MREP) and can be used to access and print remittance advice information. While the application is not owned or affiliated with Kareo, we've found our customers are very happy with this free, simple tool.
What benefits does Easy Print provide?
Easy Print can be used to print ANSI 835 (remit) files. It is also helpful for billing secondary payers on paper, billing Medicaid TX, or reading remark codes transmitted on the file. We have heard positive feedback on its ability to produce EOBs for specific patients only. Several practices shared with us that they were having to crop, black out, or use other techniques to remove ancillary patient PHI from their EOBs before submiting to payers. This simple tool can eliminate much of that hassle.
