Understanding Payments Deb Daly – 29 th January 2015
Introduction Payments include Locally Commissioned Services (monthly & quarterly reconciliations) Practice Multiclaim forms are processed quarterly by the CCG and forwarded for payment processing once reconciled against the monthly advance payments Payments are processed by the Primary Care Support at Lancing on behalf of the CCG’s (NHS Horsham & Mid-Sussex CCG & NHS Crawley CCG) Drug Payments (Area Team & CCG) Prescribing (Personally Administered items) – Drugs Basic Prices, VAT less Discount – paid by CCG Prescribing (Personally Administered items) – On Cost, Dispensing Fees, etc – paid by Area Team Payments are generated by Exeter Adhoc payments – manual (one-off) Locality Meetings processed on a manual system on a monthly basis and these will appear on the remittance advices with a clear description ie: AUG-2014 ‘Locality Meeting Apr & May14 GG/HH’ Raised and processed directly by the relevant CCG
Locally Commissioned Service Payments Each GMS/PMS practice receive a payment each month based on the previous years Actual payments i.e. Actual Total for 2013/14 = £1200/12 = new monthly 2014/15 payment Each quarter the multiclaim form is prepared ensuring that all signed up services are showing on the form as per the Signed Up List provided by Primary Care and then forwarded to the allocated person(s) within the practices approximately 1 week before the end of the quarter informing the deadline date for submissions of completed claims, usually around the 17 th of the month At this stage any omissions are usually indicated by practice, investigated and rectified i.e. new form prepared and forwarded Once received each claim is checked and processed, entered onto a master reconciliation spreadsheet and the total is calculated based on activity and the totals matched to submitted form, any differences investigated! Once all the claims are received, the reconciliation is completed and a summary is sent out to each practice, notifying the total refund/reclaim to be actioned, also to ensure that any errors are identified and corrected before being sent to PCS!
LCS Summary Check… Please note that the summaries are sent via NHS mail and can be difficult to print off in the format!!!!.....please note that if you copy the table you can paste directly into Excel for easier reference and printing
Payment Dates PMS – paid usually on or around the 15 th of month GMS – paid usually on or around the 23 rd of month On next slide an example of the codes can be seen as per the adhoc section of an Exeter Statement that is sent to the practice Split into ‘adhoc’ and ‘monthly’ payments Monthly - It was requested that the advance payments would be paid with your monthly payments to ensure that a description was available for easy reconciliation. Adhoc – payments can be from the CCG or the Area Team and usually annual types of payments ie: 2013/14 Risk Profiling paid or any arrears on monthly payments. As a rule all codes with a Z***** at the beginning are referring to CCG payments, BUT there are exceptions!....so please be careful!
Important points:- Payment Reference Number – if you have a query please either telephone or and quote this number either from your bank statement or remittance advice, with this the payment can be accessed immediately using this! Payment Date – this is the date the payment will be paid into the practice bank account The total can be several items added together!!!! ……so if more than one payment has been processed for the practice they will be ‘lumped’ together, which could relate to an Area Team or a CCG payment or both!!!! ….this is where it gets frustrating and the date of the payment can help with the ‘detective work!! At anytime you have a query about this please contact Deb Daly (NHS Horsham & Mid-Sussex CCG) or Chris Jarrett (PCS). Open Exeter – Remember that you will now receive your remittance advice on the day that the payment is raised, details will be available on Open Exeter but please note there could be a few days delay! Remittance Advice
Any payments that are a ‘-’ or a ‘+’ will be added together which further complicates the process! Remember to check against the dates for clues as to what you will be receiving! Enhanced Service payments will be paid in the month after the deadline falls in, eg: Quarter 1 claim (April to June), deadline 18 th July to be paid with the August payment. Remittance Advice
Any payments made manually will show on the remittance as per the 2 nd line! Please note that there are only 40 character spaces for the description, therefore if the payment refers to several items the description will read ‘Please see dated ’, a full summary will be sent separately to be able to use for your reconciliation purposes These will always show on a separate line as the manual payment generates a unique reference! Remittance Advice
Remittance - Drug Payments The drugs payment are split into 2 elements that also can cause some confusion, when reconciling to the bank statement! The larger total is paid from the CCG’s budget and the smaller amount is paid from the Area Team’s budget! The problem arises due to the 2 elements being paid on separate days as the Area Team have a payment run each day and the CCG’s only have BACS runs on a Tuesday and a Friday each week, so you could effectively see the 2 lines be paid on different days! The Area Team payments will be paid into the bank 4 days after the payment date & CCG payments will be paid into the bank 3 days after the payment date!
Example – Payment Query Payment received for £ – first thing to check is the payment reference ****, this is the view seen by Finance on Oracle which shows all the payments made on that reference, 3 lines £ , £ and (£336.36)
Next step is to check the Summary for the practice and see if the totals agree using the summary that is forwarded prior to processing for payment, the main columns to check are the monthly payment sum and the last column!

Locally Commissioned Service Payments Previously known as Enhanced Services At the start of the financial year, each GMS and PMS practice is ed out a master multiclaim form, This shows all of the services that the individual practice has signed up to for the year. At this stage any omissions are usually indicated by practice, investigated and rectified i.e. new form prepared and forwarded Completed claims should be returned on a monthly basis and returned to CCG no later than 7 th of the following month. Payments are made via PCSS in the month following the claim ie: April claims to be returned by 7 th May, paid May
