💡 Tip: Reconcile your provincial (MSP) bills following each remittance date.

You manage and reconcile provincial (MSP) bills through the Billing dashboard. Here, you can filter your clinic's list of bills to display:

  • Attention Required bills (bills that are rejected, partially paid or are flagged by the CHR as containing errors)

  • Submitted bills that have not received a response from MSP

  • Held bills

  • Completed bills (bills that are paid in full)

From this list, you can edit and resubmit a bill or update a bill's status.

📌 Note: You can also export billing reports or billing data from the Billing dashboard for reporting purposes or to transfer the data into another application. See Exporting billing reports from the Billing dashboard

Steps:

1. From the main menu, click Billing. The Billing dashboard opens with a list of bills created today.

2. Filter the list to display the bills you want to view or manage: At the top of the window, click the white panel and then, using the following table, set the filters.

4. If any bills come back with the status Completed (Paid) but you billed the claim in error and want to "take it back", submit a debit request. See Submitting debit requests to MSP.

5. Make sure no bills have a status of Submitted or Held for longer than 90 days.

💡 Tip: Contact MSP (1-866-456-6950) to see why they have not sent a response for a claim. Also see MSP remittance and cut off dates - 2022 to know when to expect remittances (responses) back from MSP.

6. Review the Completed bills to see if any were only partially paid. If you want to dispute any partially paid bills, submit a debit request and rebill the service. See Managing partially paid provincial (MSP) claims.

7. Review your complete remittance file (provided to you in a message via the Inbox) to read any additional messages or payment updates from MSP.
