The Ministry of Health (MOH) creates the remittance advice (RA) report in response to submitted claims. RA reports indicate which bills were paid, which were denied, how much was paid towards each, and explanatory codes or error codes.
The RA report also indicates payment expected, via automatic deposit, on the 10th business day of the same month.
You can view and download RA reports from your MDBilling portal every month (usually within the first week of each month, but may be later depending on the volume at the MOH).
You can view and generate four basic reports in MDBilling for the current month:
An Unprocessed claims summary report - claims that were submitted to the MOH but not yet processed, usually because they were submitted after the 18th of the month
Claim Summary payment report - most commonly used report showing details of each patient, service, date and payment made by the MOH
Rejection Report - shows all claims that have been rejected, including the reason for rejection
