MBS (Medicare Scheduled Fees) Import

In order for Bp Allied to process Medicare transactions for the correct amount we require a list of MBS (Scheduled Fees) to be imported and updated from time to time.

To import and/or update the MBS list:

1: Data Maintenance > MBS (Scheduled Fees) > Click Import new MBS File
This will check for the latest file on our server and import this within the Bp Allied Database.
The date and time along with the name of the last file importes in shown at the bottom of the screen.
Please note that the file is located on our server and not the Medicare server. We receive notification from Medicare when the list has changes. We will update the list on our server on the effective date, at which time a notification will appear that the latest file is available for download. You can't download the file directly.
2: Click Update Products & Services to update the Scheduled Fee and/or Benefit listed within Products and Services.  When this is clicked Bp Allied will check for matching item codes within Products and Services and insert the correct MBS Scheduled Fee and/or MBS Benefit (85%)
3: Click Ok
Once updated the MBS details will be seen in the Product and Services screen as below:
Please note that if you add a new Product and Service into Bp Allied that has an MBS Item Code you will need to click Update Products & Services for the item to be assigned the correct Scheduled Fee and/or Benefit.
