Troubleshoot online claiming

If you are having trouble connecting and sending requests to Medicare online, Best Practice Software recommend that you contact your IT technician and work through the following possible errors and resolutions. If issues still exist, contact Best Practice support for further assistance.

Before you begin

Check all of the following common problems first:

  1. Does C:\ProgramData\BPOnline exist?
  2. If not, download and run the Bp Medicare Module utility for your version of Bp Premier. Steps are described in the first troubleshooting entry in the table below.

  3. If this machine is the server, does the HIC.psi file exist in folder c:\ProgramData\BPOnline?
  4. Check Help > About > System Info. The variables at the bottom of the page must point to C:\ProgramData\BPOnline and not the old HIC folder.
  5. Is the correct version of Java installed:
    • Bp Medicare V6 Module requires Java 6 update 26 SE 6u26

    NOTE  How to check the Java version depends on your Windows version. On Windows 8 and later, go to StartAppsJavaAbout Java. On earlier versions, go to Control PanelProgramsJava.

  6. Check there a file called HicOnline-6.11-2.jar in the folder C:\ProgramData\BPOnline\Lib.
  7. Select Setup > Configuration > Online Claiming from the main Best Practice screen. Click Check Certificate Expiry to check that all certificates are current.
  8. Check that the folder C:\Program Files\Best Practice Software\BPS\Medicare Certs exists on this machine.
