Global Coverage Overview
The Global Coverage feature lets you enter multiple charges for follow up visits after a surgery. When you enter a Global Surgical Procedure for a patient in Transaction Entry, all transactions entered during the global coverage period will default to a zero-dollar amount and will not be included on claims. Once the global coverage period expires, the charges default back to the standard amount.
Medisoft Global Coverage Setup
You will first set up a Global Surgical Procedure code in the Procedure/Payments/Adjustments window. Select Global Surgical Procedure as the Code Type and then enter a number of days in the Global Period field. The number of days in the Global Period field indicates how long the global coverage lasts.
Implementing Global Coverage in Medisoft
After you have set up the procedure code, enter the code in Transaction Entry for the appropriate patient. Once the transaction is saved, the global coverage period goes into effect for the selected patient case. A Global Coverage Until date is saved for the case based off the number of days in the global period. You can modify the date on the Case window, Personal tab. The Global Coverage Until date also displays in the header of Transaction Entry, the Patient and Guarantor Ledgers, and the Appointment Entry window.
This report shows all patients who have co-payment transactions. It shows
the amount paid, how much was applied, what was left unapplied.
If a patient has no co-payment transactions, he or she is not included in the report.
Go to Reports, select Analysis Reports, and then select Co-Payment Report.
Filters include: Chart Number Range, Date From Range, Attending Provider Range, Patient Billing Code Range, Case Billing Code Range, and Patient Indicator Match. If you want to include all records for a filter option, leave the Show all values check box selected (default option). To apply a specific filter range, clear the Show all values check box and select criteria to create a range for each filter option.
If the co-payment amount applied to the date of service satisfies the transaction Copayment Expected Amount, then the transaction Copayment Paid checkbox is selected. If any applied payment makes the balance on the individual transaction reach zero dollars, then the transaction Copayment Paid checkbox is also selected.
Program Options - Billing Tab

Standard Statement Detail Only: Check this option to include all entries for the guarantor on standard statements. This option includes all transactions in the detail section instead of lumping previous charges into a previous balance. This is only applicable to standard statements through Statement Management.
