Last Update: January 2005
The Remittance Summary displays the number of claims and associated dollar amounts remitted to a Provider during a reporting period by the Board (MACSIS Company) responsible for the remittance. "Remitted" means the claims were adjudicated in MACSIS and included on a paper and/or electronic remittance advice (ERA/835) made available to the Board for forwarding to the Provider. Note this does not necessarily mean the claims were "paid" by check or voucher since such payments are often disbursed at a later time by a Board's County Auditor.
The "AP DATE" displayed is the date the claim is final (adjudicated) in MACSIS. Within a week those claims will/should appear on a remittance advice forwarded by the responsible Board to the Provider. Please keep in mind there will be a delay between the "AP Date" and when the Provider receives the Remittance Advice, however this should not be a "significant" delay (i.e., several weeks). If a Provider has not received a Remittance Advice as listed on this report and it has been several weeks, the Provider should contact the responsible Board and request clarification.
