A&L HERO Update - November 2009

A&L HEROThe changes to Version 7.10 are as follows:

1. Claims with exception code 66 are automatically archived during RA processing (for the Northern Specialist Alternate Payment Program). It is recommended that all doctors in this NS APP upgrade to HERO 7.10 BEFORE doing any further RA processing.

2. The basic unit fees for Assistant/Anesthetist billing have been increased from $11.40/$13.24 to $11.52/$14.54. This change will only take effect when you process a fee code update file.

3. When billing in the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN), use a Hospital # consisting of a 4-digit Master Number (or four spaces) followed by the letters "TN". Do NOT enter the "O" -- the "O" will be automatically added in the batch. It is no longer necessary to use an external utility.

4. Changes to the # (Quantity) field on the service item list in the Claim window.

5. Changes and corrections to error messages.

6. When saving an RA to disk, if you specify the disk drive where your HERO program is located (e.g. "C"), the RA will now be saved to the drive's ROOT folder (e.g. c:\) instead of your HERO program folder (e.g. c:\htn).

7. Added new error codes, exception codes, and specialty codes.

8. Increased reliability for storing text in notes fields (for customers using Codebase Server).
