2Training Objectives Review Patch 42 changes Review Advance Setup of Insurer (ADV) optionNew security key for ADV optionHow to add a new insurer using Quick Setup of Insurer (INS)Review Summary of Insurers (SUMI) ReportHow to change Insurers to D.0The format file (ABSP NCPDP FORMAT)will no longer be used going forward. When Patch 42 is installed, a post-install program will move the site's format information into the Insurer file automatically. The end user should not have to do anything to continue with billing after the install, the same information will be sent to Emdeon after Patch 42 is installed.The benefit is the sites can now add Insurers any time they need to, without having to wait for a new patch with new formats.Users now have the ability to change versions from 5.1 to D.0We have created new functionality when you add a new POS insurer. The user has the ability to enter (BIN, PCN, Version,..) and the system will default the rest of the fields depending on the Insurer type(MCARE,MCAID or Commercial). Most of the time you should not have to make any modifications to the default information. Even if you do, it's something that can be done at the site without needing a new release.Defaulted Fields include:MEDICARE PARTD?: N//Maximum RX's Per Claim: 4//Add Disp. Fee to Ingr.

It is recommended that the key be allocated to a supervisor or super user for point of sale.Its recommended to use the Quick Setup of Insurer (INS) to set up a new insurer.The SUMI report was modified to now display the payers that are set up in 5.1 and D.0The Medicare Part D Eligibility Check report was modified to now be sent in D.0 format
3IntroductionThe major help desk request for Pharmacy Point of Sale was the need for a new format or a modification to the format. Often times a delay in the release of a patch with these changes would takes months and this would result in loss in revenue for many sites. In patch 42, we have done away with formats and have provided direct access to the user to make changes to BIN, PCN and NCPDP segments immediately. Once patch 42 is installed, the format layout will be moved to the ABSP insurer file. All insurers currently setup at each site will run a background conversion and user should not have to make any changes to the current layout.Also included in patch 42 is the NCPDP version D.0 which goes into effect January 1, We have tested many top insurers such as Argus, Medco and Caremark among others. Users will have to change the version to D.0 for insurers that are ready to accept claims and for those insurers D.0 testing has been completed.
4What is D.0?Version D.0 is the new version of the National Council for Prescription Drug programs (NCPDP) standards for pharmacy transactions that replaces version 5.1.The mandatory compliance date for Version D.0 is January 1, 2012.

8ADV – Security Key ABSPZ INSURER NOTE: With more control, there is also concern for problems for unnecessary changes to insurer setup. A security key (ABSPZ INSURER) has been assigned to the ADV option. It is recommended the security key be allocated only to a supervisor or super user of Point of Sale. Please see your local IT person to have this key assigned to you.
