Billing Reconciliation

These are reconciliations between what you billed and what OHIP paid

The processing of the RA billing reconciliation is to successfully select Error, Summary, Report, Settle and S35.

  • Error gives you the errors codes for rejected/erroneous claims
  • Summary gives a summary of all claims paid and not
  • Report is the report from OHIP that you downloaded
  • Settle marks Submitted Invoices as Settled.  Error messages from invoices that were not paid are copied into the invoices.
  • S35 helps to settle duplicate claims (e.g., error 35).
