Users will see a warning that this action is not supported and provided a recommendation to use another status (for example, a custom status) for charges needing further action before being billed. Visit our Custom Claim Status Help Article for more information on creating your own customized charge statuses.

Review Claim

Claim Review helps you manage the complex rules and terminology of coding. This feature analyzes the claim(s) before submission to the clearinghouse and identifies any issues with your claim(s), maximizing the potential for you to be paid correctly on the first submission. Claim review is made up of 3 parts.

  1. Real Time Claim Submission (RTCS): Real-Time Claim Submission (RTCS) gives you on-demand visibility into your claim. Within seconds, claims are scrubbed for tens of thousands of clearinghouse edits.

    The charge must be in the status of “send to insurance via clearinghouse” to use RTCS.

  2. Claim Analysis: Claim Analysis is a built-in clearinghouse edit engine that validates professional and institutional claims for Generic or Payer-Specific Edits. This feature allows you to correct claims before it’s rejected by the Clearinghouse. Analyzing your claim prior to it being sent to the Clearinghouse will save you a significant amount of time on rework.

  3. Code Scrubbing (If the service is enabled): Code Scrubbing is a solution that validates your procedure codes, diagnosis codes, CCI, NCD, LCD, HCPCS, Modifiers, and LMRPs to catch any common errors before the claim is sent to a payer.

Follow the instructions below to create a patient estimate from a claim.

    3. Custom Estimate: Works directly with the payer’s eligibility system to determine the patient’s amount due based on the services and the copay and coinsurance.

      1. Check the box to calculate the amount based on copay, deductible, and coinsurance; or manually enter the copay, remaining deductible, and/or coinsurance amounts.

Send Claims to Secondary or Tertiary Insurance

CollaborateMD maintains a marker in the payer database that identifies whether a payer accepts secondary claims electronically. When an insurance payment is entered via EOB Auto Apply, the application will look for a remaining balance and whether the claim has a secondary payer. If there is a balance and a secondary payer, the application will change the charge status to “Send to Secondary via Clearinghouse” (as long as the payer is willing to accept electronic secondary claim(s)). If needed, please reference our Payer Agreements Help Article to learn how to submit and review payer agreements. 

Once verified that the payer will accept secondary claims electronically and the agreement has been approved, follow the steps below:

  1. Post the payment received from the primary insurance Please reference our Post Payments Help Article for more information on how to post insurance payments..

    Sometimes a payer will send an EOB where the check amount is $0.00. In these instances, a payer acknowledges the charge but will not reimburse you for the service, such as when a client has a deductible. If the patient(s) listed on the EOB have a secondary insurance and the claims can be submitted electronically to the second payer, you must post the $0.00 payment. Otherwise, the claim(s) will be rejected.

  1. Once the payment is posted, change the line item Status under the Charges tab of the Claim to bill the “Secondary Payer via Clearinghouse.”

  2. CMD will automatically send the primary insurance payment details as long as there’s a payment and adjustment made to each line item, even if the payer paid $0.00. The payment information that is transmitted electronically acts as the paper EOB the payer would normally receive.

Important Note

If the secondary payer does not accept secondary insurance claims electronically, the application will set the charge status to “User Print and Mail”.


Secondary claims can be billed the same day the primary payment is applied, and Tertiary claims can be billed the same day the secondary payment is applied,  accelerating reimbursement. It’s important to remember that these claims must be printed and mailed to the payer and the EOB must be attached to the claim.  

Re-submit a Claim

Follow the steps below to re-submit a claim.

  1. Select Claim > Claim.

  2. Use the Search field to search for your claim.

Print Medicare Roster Billing Claim

Roster Billing is a way for you to submit multiple claims to Medicare for flu or pneumococcal (PPV) shots and bill them using a simplified method using only one CMS-1500 form and a "Roster" listing the patients. Roster billing is used for Medicare-enrolled “Mass Inmunizers” when billing multiple patients at once. If you have other services to bill, use normal claims filing procedures and forms.

CollaborateMD does not save roster billing claims within our database for posting payments and will not track which patients were included in the "Roster." When it is time to post payments towards these claims we recommend using a Debit Code or creating a placeholder claim that is not sent to the payer. These claims are ONLY for printing purposes.
